Sunday November 4th, United Way of Perry County will sponsor its community-wide
“Youth Day of Caring
.” Junior and senior
high school age youth from churches, schools, scout groups, 4-H groups, etc. are
invited to assist local non-profit organizations in our community.
their adult leaders will spend the afternoon on tasks such as staining,
painting, cleaning, washing windows, raking leaves, weeding flower beds and
helping those in need. It is a great way
to instill the importance of community service in our young people and help
them become aware of various agencies in the county.
begin the day at 11:30 a.m. with lunch, T-shirts will be distributed to youth
volunteers, and jobs will be confirmed. Groups
will then move to their assigned sites and work until approximately 5:00 PM. All youth groups must be accompanied by
adults in order to participate.
the past, we have worked at sites such as Anderson Woods, the Council on Aging,
SIRS Bright Beginnings, 4-H Fairgrounds, the Perry County Animal Shelter, the
Perry County Museum, Tell City Museum, Tell City Parks, Perry County Parks, and
the City of Cannelton.
your group would like to participate, please call Rebecca
Fenn, Executive Director of the United
Way of Perry County at 547-2577 or by email at
email@example.com. The deadline
for signing up is October 15th.
