2012 United Way Day of Caring DWD participated in the 20th annual United Way Day of Caring on Thursday, August 2nd. After attending the kick-off breakfast at Headwaters Park, DWD employees headed out to Visiting Nurse & Hospice Home to spruce things up 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 1,100 in 2012. 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.
