Annual ‘Day of Caring’ sees less volunteers than years past

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – Pacesetters for Great Rivers United Way’s annual campaign are coming together to support programs in our area.

The annual ‘Day of Caring’ kicked off on Wednesday in the Kane Street Garden where volunteers worked to pull weeds.

The Pacesetters also volunteered at five other spots around town.

Usually, there are around 200 volunteers spread across 20 different facilities, but the pandemic has made it more difficult to volunteer.

“It’s really important to continue to volunteer, following all the protocols just to remain safe. It’s almost as if now more than ever people need the extra hands,” said Mary Kay Wolf, Executive Director of Great Rivers United Way.
