Buckeye believes in being part of the community and on Sept 8th we will be participating in the United Way Community Care Day. We would love for you to join us, even for part of the day. Together we can all make our community a better place to live, do business and enjoy.
This is the 18th Annual Community Care Day and is a volunteer event that mobilizes hundreds of people in our area to help those in need. Participants assist local non-profit organizations in completing a variety of projects, such as painting rooms or playground equipment, assisting clients with daily activities, repairing or building a home or facility, outdoor clean-up, stocking inventory at food pantries, just to name a few.
Community Care Day projects are completed by students and teams of employees from companies throughout Fairfield County. Sites include community services agencies, United Way-funded organizations, schools, and playgrounds.
United Way of Fairfield County is focused on critical issues such as helping children and youth succeed, family stability, health care, mental health and wellness and job development.
Their goal is long lasting change that prevents problems from happening in the first place. They realize that they may never prevent problems, however are focused on building a community where everyone has opportunities and resources to reach their potential.
Too many families are walking along a financial tightrope, barely getting by, with no ability to save for college, a home, or retirement. They are working to transform that financial tightrope into solid ground by helping families learn the basics of budgeting, increase their income and start to set aside savings.
