United Way of Hall County kicks off annual campaign with week of service

By Lauren Hunter Multimedia Journalist

United Way of Hall County will kick off its annual campaign this week with a full week of community service.

This Week of Caring asks corporate partners and volunteers across Hall County to dedicate time helping local non-profits with service projects, according to a press release from UWHC.

“Through these uncertain times we have been here for our community, and we will continue to be a resource for support, but we know we can’t do our work alone,” said Jessica Dudley, president of UWHC. “Our goal is to maximize the impact we can make in just one week when people come together and Live United.”

Some service projects must be completed at the non-profit, while others can be done from a remote location. Examples include painting at the Salvation Army, landscaping at Good News Clinic or writing thank you letters to teachers for Hall County Schools.

The purpose of the Week of Caring is to encourage community members to volunteer more and help them development an awareness for the needs of the community.

To sign up for a project during Week of Caring, visit unitedwayhallcounty.org or email Meghan Mitchell at mmitchell@unitedwayhallcounty.org.
