The United Way of Chatham County will kick off its annual campaign with the Day of Service Wednesday, September 15, 2021. 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.
This year 8 local organizations submitted 9 community service projects: Boys & Girls Club Wren Family Center – outdoor enrichment and facility beautification and playground updates; Chatham CARES Pharmacy, Smith and Buckner Funeral Home and Siler City Police Department – food drive and drug take back event; Chatham Education Foundation – book sort and distribution; Chatham Trades – fence installation; CORA Food Pantry – grounds maintenance, repairs and landscaping; Chatham Habitat for Humanity – community build; Salvation Army – Angel Tree preparation; Primrose School of Chapel Hill at Briar Chapel – school supply drive for students of Chatham County Schools.
