Volunteers set for Twin County United Way’s 24th Day of Caring

Twenty teams have signed up for volunteer service on May 14

LEWIS-CLARK VALLEY – A total of 20 volunteer teams will take part in service projects in Twin County United Way’s 24th Annual Day of Caring presented by Regence BlueShield of Idaho on Friday morning.

There will be a virtual kickoff at 8 a.m. with welcomes from the Day of Caring chair and the Twin County United Way staff, as well as from the Presenting Sponsor Regence BlueShield of Idaho.

At 8:30 a.m., the volunteers will begin their service at pre-determined nonprofit agency sites throughout the Lewis-Clark Valley, where they will do a variety of projects. Many nonprofit agencies do not have the manpower or funds for projects so the volunteer teams will do a variety of tasks, including painting, cleaning and helping with moves to new offices.

Projects will wrap up around noon and the volunteers are invited to the Lewiston Community Center at 1424 Main St. in Lewiston to enjoy free Fazzari’s pizza, donated by Fazzari’s.

Support from Regence, P1FCU, and Tri-State Memorial Hospital, along with in-kind donations from Fazzari’s, ArtBeat, and Idaho Beverages underwrite the cost of the event.

Photos and videos of the day’s activities will be shared throughout the day by Twin County United Way and volunteer teams via social media including, @TwinCountyUW, #TCUW #LiveUnited #TCUWDayofCaring.
