Day of Caring a Success
Fourteen Oklahoma Department of CareerTech staff members took time off from work Thursday to lend a hand during the 2013 Stillwater Day of Caring and make sure that Everyone Counts.
The Day of Caring kicks off the Stillwater United Way Campaign every year. Participants gathered for breakfast and watched the new campaign video before heading out into the community. Numerous organizations sponsor the event and approximately 350 people volunteer each year.
“We so appreciate CareerTech’s involvement with our annual Day of Caring,” said Sheri Carter, Stillwater United Way executive director. “Career Tech has provided a team almost every year since this event began here in Stillwater back in 1996 and has completed projects at a number of our United Way partner agencies. It is especially humbling to know that the CareerTech employees use personal vacation time to volunteer at Day of Caring.”
This year, CareerTech employees trimmed trees and built a wooden fence at Edwin Fair Mental Health Center. In years past, CareerTech teams have served at Payne County Youth Services, Wings of Hope and other locations in Stillwater.
Fund raiser set for October 7.
