To the editor:
The Board of Directors and Staff of the United Way of the Adirondack Region, Inc., SUNY Plattsburgh Project H.E.L.P and the Adirondack Coast Visitors Bureau would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the 561 volunteers and all those who donated more than 1,250 food items on the Day of Caring.
At one point we had more project then volunteers to complete them so a special thanks go out to those volunteers who step-up on the day so every project could be completed.
This year there were over 75 projects completed through-out Clinton, Essex and Franklin Counties with volunteers logging over 1,350 hours in one day. The communities' willingness to get involved and to assist with these projects was instrumental to the overall success.
It is the opportunity to work with community minded people like all the volunteers that makes our work at the United Way so enjoyable. Local people working to help local people ... That's the United Way.
