Organizations in Auglaize County who help others receive some help of their own. Dozens of volunteers spread out across the county to help with the Annual Day of Caring.
The event brought together local volunteer teams to work on important projects to benefit local non-profit programs and services.
This year volunteers worked on 21 projects doing everything from yard work, to painting projects, and cleaning and organizing areas.
A group from Dannon Yogurt was helping install a wheelchair ramp in St. Marys.
Over at the Agape Food Pantry volunteers were painting a client waiting room and a back room where food is brought in.
Executive Director Kathy Bayless is amazed at what the Day of Caring and United Way means to Auglaize County.
Last year more than 250 volunteers contributed more than 1,200 volunteer hours worth more than $36,000 to the 16 United Way of Auglaize County partner agencies.
