PITTSBORO — The Chatham County Board of Commissioners unanimously passed a resolution Monday recognizing Wednesday, Sept. 15, as the official United Way of Chatham County Day of Service.

The Day of Service is an all-day event which unites community leaders, businesses and volunteers to complete community service projects for nonprofits across Chatham County, and will serve as the official kick off to the 2021 United Way Annual Campaign.

“It is no secret that our community is still feeling the impacts of COVID-19,” said Alane Coore, finance officer for United Way of Chatham County. “One thing that every non-profit agency in Chatham County has experienced over the last year is a decrease in volunteer support. Our hope is that this event will encourage the connection between those who can help to those who need help. By supporting this event you are encouraging others to make a difference in their community and we can’t thank you enough.”

Once the resolution passed, Chatham County Commissioner Jim Crawford said supporting United Way of Chatham County is a “privilege,” and encouraged everyone in attendance to “just give five hours of your time to any United Way organization.”

“Lean in with your time and effort,” Crawford said.

To volunteer for a Day of Service project, or for more information, visit www.UnitedWayOfChathamCounty.org/DayofService/.

Day of Service sponsors include Carolina Civilworks Inc., Axis Utility Inc., Sanctuary Apartment Homes at Powell Place, Triangle Community Foundation, Realty World Carolina Properties and Marley’s Hair Design. The day’s media sponsor is the Chatham News + Record.

The United Way of Chatham County funds 23 programs managed by its 16 nonprofit agencies that specialize in the education, financial stability and health of Chatham County residents.
