Hundreds of volunteers rolled up their sleeves for United Way of West Florida’s 29th Day of Caring.
Day of Caring is a single-day, community-wide volunteer event organized by United Way of West Florida. United Way connects volunteers with local agencies and schools in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties needing service projects completed.
More than 600 volunteers tackled more than 60 projects on Friday.
“It’s huge. I mean without people like these groups here today there’s no way we could get everything done for our families that we do,” said Ronald McDonald House Executive Director Summer Jimmerson.
Since 1993, United Way of West Florida has coordinated more than 28,000 volunteers to complete projects across Escambia and Santa Rosa counties.
