Annual United Way Day of Caring offers volunteer opportunity, helps community efforts
United Way Day of Caring volunteers
The annual United Way Day of Caring provides an opportunity to improve the community through service. Last year over 1,800 people volunteered to help central Indiana’s nonprofit organizations, schools, and childcare centers. We were thankful to have some of these volunteers at HVAF last year. This year on Friday, August 23rd, HVAF hosted more United Way volunteers.

One of these volunteers was Raphael Adeola, 27, from Amica Insurance. “Our company has two volunteer days a year and this is a great way to thank our veterans,” he said. Raphael’s uncle served in the Army and his sister and brother-in law served in the Air Force.
Jeffrey Archey Jr., 24, a Loan Executive sponsored by UPS for United Way also wanted to give back to our veterans. “I’m trying to get a greater understanding of all the agencies United Way is associated with. It’s also a great feeling to come out and do something for the veterans.”
Thank you to those who participated this year. We hope to see you all again next year!
