Juneau, Alaska (KINY) Juneau opened its heart once again for the United Way.
In keeping with the spirit of volunteerism in our communities, United Way of Southeast Alaska held its annual Day of Caring in Juneau recently. Local nonprofits were matched up with local businesses whose employee teams completed prearranged projects at the agencies. The participating businesses were Northrim Bank, GCI, True North Federal Credit Unit, Shattuck and Grummet, Coeur Alaska and Wells Fargo.
The day of caring began at DIPAC for an introduction and continental breakfast. Immediately afterward, teams were dispatched to work on their assigned projects at AEYC, AWARE, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Bridge Adult Day Program, Helping Hands and Wildflower Court. Another project was held at JAMI that was completed two days later. Over 40 volunteers were able to get a tremendous amount of work done for seven nonprofit agencies who serve the community of Juneau.
United Way officials thanked all of the participating businesses, agencies and everyone who came out for the Day of Caring. Baxter, Bruce & Sullivan P.C. donated breakfast.
