CULLMAN, Ala. – United Way Day of Caring took place Tuesday, and although it was a little leaner than normal due to COVID-19, teams of volunteers worked hard all over town lending a hand.

“Today looked a little different than typical years,” said United Way of Cullman County Executive Director Becky Goff. “We had a lighter turnout and we didn’t get to gather as a group, but there was no shortage of caring and compassion for our community and United Way.”

Goff said more than 75 volunteers participated in projects for local nonprofits.

“Volunteers spent the day landscaping, pressure washing, cleaning and spreading encouragement around Cullman,” she said.

United Way expressed thanks to Milo’s Hamburgers for donating breakfast and Coca-Cola for donating drinks for all the volunteers. Businesses that sent volunteers to participate include: REHAU, LP, Peoples Bank, North Alabama Dive Center, Payroll Services, Publix, Wal-Mart, Good Grit Magazine, The Lakeside Life, Vinemont Town Council and Topre.
