DAY OF CARING | In 1992, about 250 volunteers gathered to help spruce up what was then the YWCA campus on North Wells Street. That event has now grown into an opportunity for thousands of volunteers to come together to make Allen County a better place to live and work. Those who roll up our sleeves and raise our hands know this event as Day of Caring.
This year, over 1,600 volunteers participated in more than 80 community service projects in the Fort Wayne area. Day of Caring projects included various tasks such as cleaning, landscaping, painting, supply drives, and general maintenance. Projects took anywhere from four to eight hours to complete and teams ranged in size from three to 200 people. The completed work was done at non-profit agencies, schools, or private residences recommended by NeighborLink.
