More than 200 to Volunteer at Children's Services Campus

Hillsborough County, Fla. (Sept. 29, 2016) - An estimated 250 United Way HandsOn Suncoast volunteers will descend on Hillsborough County's Children's Services campus on Friday, Sept. 30, to work on multiple projects to improve the lives of the youth served there.

Among other tasks, volunteers will repair a gazebo, improve the rock garden, and renovate the clothing closet, which provides free clothing to those served by Children's Services. The work is being done as part of United Way's Day of Caring project, which culminates Oct. 6 with numerous service projects across the region.
