The United Way of Broome County hopes to have 75 to 90 volunteer groups matched at 76 to 80 project locations around the county, including non-profit agencies, parks, churches, senior centers and more.

Volunteers come from local colleges, churches, civic groups and a variety of businesses.

The Day of Caring started s a remembrance to those who lost their lives during the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001 and to honor the many heroes that evolved from the aftermath of that day.

It has continued through the spirit of local volunteers and has grown into an annual tradition.

Each year, approximately 1,000 volunteers come together to lend a hand to local non-profits, child care centers, parks and government agencies.
