The Hutchinson County United Way is seeking projects for its Day of Caring this April.
The event is scheduled for April 28, 2012. There will not be a day of caring scheduled this fall.
According to Teri Hogue, who is on the United Way Board of Directors, this particular event is a day when volunteers choose to give their time and services to work on a one-time service project in an effort to impact the communityâ€™s needs with tasks that they are unable to perform themselves.
â€śProjects are dependent upon the manpower available,â€ť she said.

The City of Borger wishes to advise its citizens that the City is in no way affiliated with nor do we endorse their product. Citizens should investigate the situation thoroughly before responding to such offers.
