United Way of South Mississippi will host it bi-annual Day of Caring, this Friday, April 11th in Harrison, Hancock and Pearl River Counties.

United Way of South Mississippi is expecting about 50 volunteers for a variety of different projects like planting community gardens, painting, and cleaning up areas. Projects will be held at 13 different sites across the Coast, including The Salvation Army, Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art, Gulf Coast Community Ministries, and Habitat for Humanity Bay-Waveland.

Several corporate partners, such as Coast Electric and The Hard Rock Biloxi, will be participating by allowing staff to trade a day of work for a day of volunteering.

“Volunteering is such a simple and meaningful way to impact our community,” said Director of the Volunteer Center, Juliane Molesworth. “United Way is so grateful to all of the volunteers for the work they will be doing, and we hope that the Day of Caring acts as an encouragement for the entire community to give back to those in need.”

Projects are expected to last until the early afternoon. For a full list of projects and locations, visit unitedwaysm.org and click VOLUNTEER!
