United Way volunteers give 'Day of Caring'
River Falls Wisconsin 2815 Prairie Drive / P.O. Box 25 54022

Close to 140 volunteers supplied the labor for a "Day of Caring" sponsored by United Way St. Croix Valley on Friday, Sept. 18.

Many of the volunteers were provided by Hudson-area businesses. After a lunch and rally at the United Way's Food Resource Center, the volunteers spent the afternoon assisting senior citizens and local agencies doing projects such as painting, cleaning, weeding and washing windows.
