PHOTO Opportunity: Upcoming “Day of Caring®” Project through United Way
Prince George, BC – United Way Northern BC (UWNBC) is busy planning a “Day of Caring®” with Kelson Group to help Phoenix Transition Society with their walkway, that leads to the children’s counseling program, on Wednesday 12th September 2018 –from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm. We invite your coverage at the following Day of Caring Event:
Wednesday 12th September 2018 – Kelson Group and Phoenix Transition Society – 9:30 am to 2:30 pm
Due to the generous help of volunteers from Kelson Group, the United Way was able to help make the Phoenix Transition Society’s walkway safer and easier to maintain especially during the precarious winter months.
“Kelson Group believes in giving back to each community we do business in and the Day of Caring® is an excellent way to match up our time and skills with local needs and requirements.” says Dave Marshall, Property Manager.
Sandra Morton, Children Who Witness Abuse counselor says “participating in a Day of Caring® is a way to connect our community together. It creates relationship building and connection with one another. The Day of Caring® also allows volunteers to experience a United Way funded program firsthand. Volunteers are able to get a better understanding of the service that we provide to the families of Prince George and in the north. It is a day building connections through working alongside one another, having fun, sharing a meal together and lots of good conversation.”
Days of Caring® are opportunities for businesses to work with non-profits to complete projects that otherwise would not be completed. United Way Corporates Partners that partake in Days of Caring® gives their staff an opportunity to team build, give back to the community and help United Way funded agencies complete projects that would normally not get done. Assistance like this is a huge value to not-for-profits and working together helps build stronger communities.
If businesses or agencies would like to request a day of caring – please contact Michele Brooke (details listed below).
