The United Way 2017 Day of Caring event took place on Friday, September 29th. This annual event, in its 19th year, broke another food collection record, bringing in over 38,000 food items. It consisted of The Salvation Army Food Pantry Food Drive, the American Red Cross Blood Drive, and local business services projects for the United Way agencies. New this year the food was split between The Salvation Army Food Pantry, the Trinity Friends Church food pantry, and the Van Wert Co-Op Ministries Food Pantry.This joint collaboration made the volunteer numbers and food collected numbers an all-time high! The blood drive collected over 180 units of blood also! Our 2018 Day of Caring is already underway. If you would like to be involved you can call the United Way office at 419-238-6689 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
