"This event is not a fundraiser, nor a campaign. It's simply an event that we put on to help those organizations in need. Seeing over 350 students and volunteers give back to the community on one day is truly an inspiring event."

— The 14 annual Day of Caring — a day when volunteers visit local non-profit human service agencies to help clean up and clean out for the coming months ahead — will be held on Saturday, Sept. 13, at Delaware Valley High School and Wallenpaupack Middle School.

The annual 9/11 Memorial Blood Drive will be held in the DV Middle School caféteria beginning at 9 a.m.

"The Day of Caring is a perfect example of how we contribute to the community," said Patrick Kiesendahl is president of the United Way of Pike County. "This event is not a fundraiser, nor a campaign. It's simply an event that we put on to help those organizations in need. Seeing over 350 students and volunteers give back to the community on one day is truly an inspiring event.  As President of the United Way I am inspired by the growth of this event."

The Day of Caring starts at the Delaware Valley 9-10 campus with registration at 8 a.m. Every volunteer will receive a free tee shirt, a gift from The Dime Bank. After registration all volunteers are invited to breakfast prepared by the Warrior Café, compliments of Orange and Rockland Power, and Pike County Light and Power. The actual work day begins at 9 a.m. and will end at 2 p.m.

The Woodloch Pine Resort will donate bagels to supplement the breakfast and snacks for volunteers.

"Woodloch is proud to be associated with the United Way of Pike County's Day of Caring," said John Kiesendahl, owner of Woodloch Pines Resort. "Year after year it has been a staple event, and we firmly believe in giving back to the community we live in." states, John Kiesendahl,

Organizer and Co-chair Bob Filarsky said that after supporting and attending many United Way events through the years, "it felt only right to give more to a community I've called home for over 10 years.  The Day of Caring is the perfect event to co-chair for me because it gives me a chance to help all those organizations that the United Way Funds."
