United Way Day of Caring

Today is the United Way of the Mid-South's Day of Caring. Teams and representatives of corporations and organizations across the area are gathering at Christ the Rock church to plan and begin their campaigns.

This year’s General Campaign Chairman is Jerry Collins Jr., President and CEO of Memphis Light, Gas and Water. MLGW’s Steering Committee and volunteers from across the Division will be in attendance. United Way of the Mid-South’s 2009 campaign slogan is “Live United.”

After the opening ceremonies and words of encouragement, the teams of volunteers will head out to work sites around the community where they will assist community centers, churches, educational facilities and other organizations with much-needed repairs, remodeling, cleaning, etc. MLGW volunteers will assist at the Memphis Center for Independent Living, 1633 Madison Ave., and Harwood Center, Inc., 711 Jefferson Ave.

MLGW's United Way fundraising campaign will run November 2-13. Last year employees raised over $800,000!
