The Matagorda County United Way will kick off its 10th Annual Day of Caring at 8:00 a.m. May 4th. Over 100 volunteers will gather at the Bay City Service Center to enjoy a light breakfast and get work assignments, tools and materials. Volunteers will proceed to projects located throughout Matagorda County to make minor home repairs, build wheelchair ramps, work on lawns and gardens, help with spring cleaning and tackle other odd jobs for seniors and people with disabilities. This event is an annual community-wide service project that epitomizes the value of working together for the common good and gives true meaning to the United Way slogan, LIVE UNITED. Supplies and materials are paid for by the United Way with funds received from area businesses. All work is done by volunteers. If you would like to volunteer or sponsor the event or you wish to apply for services, please contact the Matagorda County United Way at 979-245-5852.
