United Way of Clatsop County invites community members to the 2018 Day of Caring event on April 21. The Day of Caring is a countywide opportunity for community members to give something back to their community by volunteering time and talent. For this year’s projects, United Way of Clatsop County has partnered with local schools and parks.
In Seaside, Seaside Heights Elementary needs help with bridge and trail maintenance to keep the outdoor learning opportunities safe and accessible. The Seaside community gardens need help prepping for the upcoming planting season.
In Astoria, Tapiola Park and Evergreen Fields need a hand sprucing up the ball fields for the softball and baseball season. New bark chips for the playground, tree wells for over 100 trees and painting of the dugouts and picnic shelters.
In Warrenton, trail maintenance on the waterfront trail between the Lewis and Clark Bridge and the Young’s Bay Bridge. Camp Kiwanilong needs help prepping the grounds for upcoming summer youth programs.
All volunteers are invited to attend a thank-you barbecue at Camp Kiwanilong at 3:30 p.m. for community building, entertainment and s’mores around the campfire.
