On Sept. 9, the United Way of Kershaw County (UWKC) hosted it’s annual Day of Caring at sites around the county. Volunteers consisted of government officials, county employees, local business employees and volunteers from non profit organizations who dispersed to sites throughout the county and helped with landscaping, beautification projects, reading projects, cleaning and painting.

The UWKC funds more than 20 agencies that provide services to Kershaw County residents.

“Our United Way makes a huge difference in the community and it is because of the volunteers.  We need volunteers and we need money. Those two things coming together make a huge difference in our community. I want people to know that our community cares, Volunteers range from INVISTA, to the schools, to the Dept. of Transportation ... various folks  give back to our community in a variety of ways,” UWKC President Donny Supplee said. 

Also during the Day of Caring, the UWKC’s fund raiser Thermometer was placed outside of the post office in Camden.

“Our goal this year is $800,000. Last year we raised around $720,000. We are at 42 percent,” Supplee said.
