United Way of Chatham County’s Day of Service Recognized by Chatham County Commissioners
PITTSBORO, NC – The Chatham County Board of Commissioners unanimously passed a resolution Monday, August 16, recognizing Wednesday, September 15, 2021 as the official United Way of Chatham County Day of Service.
The Day of Service is an all-day event that unites community leaders, businesses and volunteers to complete community service projects for nonprofits across Chatham County, and will serve as the official kick off to the 2021 United Way Annual Campaign.
“It is no secret that our community is still feeling the impacts of COVID-19,” said Alane Coore, Finance Officer for United Way of Chatham County. “One thing that every non-profit agency in Chatham County has experienced over the last year is a decrease in volunteer support. Our hope is that this event will encourage the connection between those who can help to those who need help.
“By supporting this event you are encouraging others to make a difference in their community and we can’t thank you enough.”
Once the resolution passed, Chatham County Commissioner Jim Crawford said supporting United Way of Chatham County is a “privilege,” and encouraged everyone in attendance to “just give five hours of your time to any United Way organization.”
“Lean in with your time and effort,” Crawford said.
