This is your day to care about the community

This is your day to care about the community

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - If you love working in the garden, maybe you use your green thumb skills to prepare a garden for winter planting.  If you're good with a paint brush, you can spend the day doing touch up work a Habitat for Humanity house.  If construction is your thing, one of your neighbors could use a new ramp.

Those are just three projects on the calendar today as the United Way of South Mississippi celebrates the Leo Seal Day of Caring.

This annual event gives you a chance to help our community shine. Various organizations across the Mississippi Gulf Coast will be hosting a variety of projects, so all you have to do is pick the one that works for you, and volunteer to lend a hand.

Click here to see some of the projects that need volunteers today. Or go to the Knight Non-Profit Center on Seaway Road at 8:00 this morning and sign up for a day of caring project.
