United Way of Central Florida and Polk Kiwanis Clubs brought the community together to give back during National Volunteer Week. With two designated days for volunteerism, United Way Day of Caring on Friday, April 15 and Kiwanis One Day on Saturday, April 16, teams of volunteers from local organizations and individual volunteers were able to join together to help local nonprofits.
The Learning Resource Center was thrilled to be part of the event and would like to express sincere gratitude to both organizations as well as Lakeland Regional Health, who recruited a team of outstanding volunteers to help beautify the LRC office.
The group arrived around 8:30 a.m. where LRC staff greeted them. Executive Director Pam Craven briefed the team with details on the organization and the tasks at hand.
The tasks included cleaning gutters, sweeping steps, washing windows and pressure washing the building and fence. The Lakeland Regional Health team graciously and willingly took on this feat.
Thanks to LRC’s United Way Day of Caring 2016 team for refreshing the appearance of the office’s exterior and making it bright white again!
We would also like to thank our volunteers who help us throughout the year because in the words of Hellen Keller, “Together we can do so much.”
