To the Editor:
The United Way Day of Caring was held on April 27 and across the North Country approximately 70 projects were completed with help from more than 500 volunteers.
Two United Way partners, Literacy Volunteers of Essex/Franklin Counties and RSVP of Essex County, received help from 10 community volunteers. The project was to paint Literacy Volunteers’ main office in Port Henry. Collectively, these volunteers put in more than 50 hours of volunteer service, and the result is phenomenal. The office is now more colorful, and energizing.
With help from these volunteers our tutors and adult learners now have a chalkboard to use in our tutoring room and the environment is more educational.
Thank you so much for giving your time and efforts to support this project and the United Way Day of Caring.
