2016 United Way Day of Caring
SANFORD - Hands were busy and hearts were full on June 1 when volunteers from Pratt & Whitney, the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, Unum, Baker Company, Jagger Brothers, Kennebunk Savings Bank, and the Sanford Alternative School all turned out for an amazing day at Waban for the 21st United Way Day of Caring.
All Waban locations, including 25 residential homes, summer camp, the main campus on Route 4, and the Fraser-Ford Child Development Center enjoyed the handiwork of volunteers from various companies and Waban staff and residents. Many returning volunteers and long-time residents look forward to this day each year, when they can work together again, to enhance the homes with some paint or landscaping. At the lakeside camp area, volunteers picked up rakes, cleaning buckets, paint brushes, and hammers to spread mulch, repaint cabins, and build a new, 6-foot high wooden fence surrounding the Wormwood Center’s patio and planned Memorial Garden.
