United Way Volunteers Spruce Up the School
On Saturday, August 28, 2010, a team of volunteers from Wingate University gave five hours of their time to make a difference in their community. East Elementary was very fortunate to partner with United Way who provided the volunteers for the annual United Way Day of Caring.
Expressing her gratitude for those who volunteered, school principal Karen Anderson stated, â€œEvery year we look forward to having a volunteer team for the United Way Day of Caring! It is so impressive that college students were willing to give up a Saturday morning to volunteer in their community. They were a delightful group of young people who clearly have a commitment to making the world a better place!â€
