2020 Day of Caring went virtual for the first time!

Due to the pandemic, volunteers took a creative and different approach to many of the needs in our community!  Local projects ranged from virtual painting lessons, to in-person wall murals, constructing Little Free Libraries, and even building outdoor planter boxes.
