Day Of Caring For United Way Volunteers

Dozens of East Texas volunteers made Friday a Day of Caring. The United Way of Tyler-Smith County held it's 14th annual Day Of Caring and campaign kickoff Friday morning. Volunteers pitched in to do numerous projects that could all be done in a day for area nonprofits. Our very own Morgan Palmer was there bright and early to emcee the kickoff.

"It gives them an opportunity to get infrastructure type needs done...free without having to spend money from United Way or their own fundraising," says Deputy Chief Greg Grigg, chairman of the United Way Board of Directors.

United Way's campaign goal for this year is to raise more than 2 million dollars for local nonprofit organizations.
