A Day of Caring

On this September 11th 850 workers workers from a number of local companies spent their days volunteering for local non-profits as part of the United Way's Day of Caring.

Some of the 70 projects they worked on included landscaping, painting, and clean up of places such as the Boys and Girls Club of Binghamton, Discovery Center, and Roberson Museum.

At Mom's House in Johnson City Volunteers put the finishing touches on a lawn that just two weeks ago was overrun by weeds.

"We would not be able to accomplish this without them so we are so incredibly grateful for their help. Wegmans has been here for the past several years so they have really been focused on Mom's House, and we appreciate that," said Mom's House Executive Director Laura Bowen.

"With their day care program, helping young mothers with their education, help them with their daycare, and just being in the neighborhood it's great for them to be here and we want to help," said Donna Reep-Cook, Administrative Assistant for Wegmans.

The United Way created the Day of Caring in 2002 as a way to remember those lost in the terrorist attacks of 9/11.
