United Way of Southeast Alaska held its annual Day of Caring which involves local nonprofits and local businesses whose employee teams match up to complete prearranged projects at the agencies. The participating businesses were Northrim Bank, GCI, True North Federal Credit Unit, Shattuck and Grummet, Coeur Alaska and Wells Fargo.
The day of caring began at DIPAC for an introduction and continental breakfast. Immediately afterward, teams were dispatched to work on their assigned projects at AEYC, AWARE, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Bridge Adult Day Program, Helping Hands, Wildflower Court and JAMI. Over 40 volunteers were able to get a tremendous amount of work done for seven nonprofit agencies who serve the community of Juneau.
