Annual Day of Caring
Every year on the second Wednesday in September the United Way of Cowlitz and Wahkiakum County host their Annual Day of Caring. Many local non-profit agencies sign up to have volunteers come and help clean up their building or grounds. Literally hundreds of volunteers, young and old, come together on this day to help. Various work-type projects include painting, presser washing, weeding gardens, cutting back shrubs and planting flowers. Removing leaves from clogged gutters and roof tops. Folding and rearranging clothing, shoveling and spreading rock and many other tasks that need to be completed on this one day. SERVPRO of Longview/Kelso has been a proud supporter of Annual Day of Caring since 2011. Annual Day of Caring is a day for us all to come together, with our friends in business and our friends in our community, to help those who strive to help others. The 501c3's (non profits) have a purpose and that purpose is to help those who need it. I would say that sounds similar to SERVPRO's purpose.
