"It's a huge fulfillment for us to give back to the community," volunteer Amanda Boyer-Everett said. "It's where we live and work. And the children of this community are the next generation of leaders in this community. So it's very fulfilling and important for us to do that."
The United Way invested in Head Start's summer learning initiatives, according to Jenny Fleming with the United Way. "Today they're helping them have a field day to use some of the activities in the curriculum," Fleming said.
This year's United Way Day of Caring drew in a record 930 volunteers. They helped at 73 sites around Washington County.
