Today marks the Cortland United Ways’ 20th annual Day of Caring which is the official kick-off of the annual fundraising campaign.
For many years, the United Way volunteers performed service projects in the community as part of the day of caring. The day was later turned into a food drive for local food pantries to honor former resident Wendy Thibeault.
The annual food drive wraps up today, volunteers will be all over the county today picking up food and supply donations and delivering them to Beaudry Park where volunteers will organize and sort items for local food pantries.
Donations can still be made today at Beaudry Park between 10am and 2pm.
