UCT volunteers make a difference through Community Care Day
COLUMBUS, Ohio, September 2011 - Twenty-one Home Office employees volunteered to make a difference in our community by taking part in the United Way of Central Ohio's 20th-anniversary Community Care Day.
Employees joined 60 volunteers from Franklin University and JP Morgan Chase to collect litter and spruce up Columbus' Driving Park neighborhood as part of the Keep Columbus Beautiful project. Altogether 148 bags of litter and 35 bags of recycling were collected.
Community Care Day is an annual day of service representing the largest volunteer effort in central Ohio. More than 75,000 volunteers have been mobilized over the years to provide an estimated $500,000 in equivalent labor costs to United Way member agencies, other charities, neighborhood groups and schools. This year 3,000 volunteers took on nearly 200 projects.
