United Way Day of Caring Event Draws Nearly 1,000 Volunteers

United Way of the Black Hills held their annual Day of Caring fundraiser on Thursday, September 7th. Approximately 1,000 volunteers contributed to 79 different projects, reports the Rapid City Journal and United Way of the Black Hills Executive Director Jamie Toennies. The volunteers assisted Rapid City businesses and residents with yard work and landscaping projects.

While the number of volunteers was down from 2016, the 92 teams of volunteers are estimated to have had $80,000 worth of positive economic impact.

United Way of the Black Hills has three more Day of Caring events scheduled for other Black Hills communities through the month of September in Custer, Spearfish, and Sturgis. The fundraising goal for the 2017 year for the organization is about $2,323,000 with Rapid City comprising nearly $2,000,000 of that goal.
