Day of Caring is back! We have a project that needs volunteers.

Come help PACT put the finishing touches on their new building located at 1354 W. Lincolnway, Valparaiso (the old Don Roberts Beauty School). Newly renovated, there are still a couple of projects left to tackle.

We need your help to:

Empty, clean, paint and reorganize our supply storage room.

Paint hand railings leading to the entrance door.

And to complete miscellaneous projects: interior painting (interior doors, etc.), clean windows, hang blinds, put some furniture together.

Sign up for this project today at https://unitedwaypc.galaxydigital.com/aem/general/need/?doc_id=6076&need_id=601009 #dayofcaring #liveunited #volunteering
