19th Annual United Way Day of Caring DWD participated in the 19th annual United Way Day of Caring on Thursday, August 4th. After attending the kick-off breakfast at Headwaters Park, DWD employees headed out to Early Childhood Alliance to spruce up the administrative location with landscaping, cleaning, and painting. The weather was perfect to be outside giving back to the community. The Day of Caring began in 1993 with 250 volunteers and has grown to over 1,200 in 2011. Volunteers spend the day working on various service projects at local nonprofits and organizations. DWD has participated in the Day of Caring from its inception and has done everything from painting houses (inside and outside) to cutting down trees and mulching.
