Vantage Career Center’s Day of Caring is the United Way of Van Wert County’s largest food fundraising event of the year. At the end of September, local schools and businesses come together to donate top needed food items and monetary donations that are equally distributed between the county’s food pantries. The American Red Cross runs a blood drive alongside Day of Caring to replenish the local blood bank. Every unit of blood collected helps save 3 lives.
We hope you’ll join us at one or both of these events and take part in feeding and helping our neighborhood. If you are interested in being a volunteer, please call the United Way office at 419-238-6689.
