Volunteers spread mulch, cleaned and hosted a yard sale, saving local nonprofits hours of work.
More than 350 people fanned out across Johnson County on Thursday to help agencies that the United Way serves. The Day of Caring each year marks the start of the annual fundraising campaign for the United Way of Johnson County.
The volunteering event also allows employees who donate to the agency to see where their money goes. Some volunteers get a chance to give back after they have been helped by a United Way agency or program.
