Over 500 Volunteers Help United Way of Broward County’s Day of Caring

MORE THAN 500 LOCAL VOLUNTEERS CAME OUT TO PARTICIPATE IN UNITED WAY OF BROWARD COUNTY’S 28TH ANNUAL DAY OF CARING PRESENTED BY MEMORIAL HEALTHCARE SYSTEM ON DECEMBER 18, 2019.

Volunteers gathered in teams at the BB&T Center in Sunrise to help prepare 300,000 healthy oatmeal packages for Broward County residents who are in need of food due to financial hardships or other circumstances. The packed boxes were then delivered to 25 local food banks through United Way of Broward County’s food distribution program Project Lifeline.

The 28th Annual Day of Caring began with a welcome ceremony where Kathleen Cannon, President/CEO of United Way of Broward County, thanked all the volunteers and sponsors for their support and spoke about how important it is to give back to the community. The 500 volunteers came from more than 25 companies in Broward County.
