Day of Caring - May 14th

While we are unable to gather large groups of volunteers this year as in the past, there are always ways to help!  Check out these easy steps to help give back on this year's United Way of Cumberland County Day of Caring!

1.  SIGN UP TO GIVE BLOOD.  We will host a blood drive for the American Red Cross at Snyder Memorial Baptist Church (701 Westmont Dr, Fayetteville, NC 28305) on Friday May 14th from 10 am to 3 pm. To make an appointment go to and enter the Sponsor Code: United.  If you would like to donate blood but do not have a way to get there, please call Melissa Reid at (910) 483-1179 ext. 228.
