Off The Clock: United Way partners with businesses to give back to communities
United Way of Berks County held its annual Day of Caring on Sept. 12. Nearly 550 volunteers participated in 40 community projects throughout Berks County. Members of United Way’s Emerging Leaders United spent the day at Amanda Stout Elementary engaging with children from various ages and also assisted students in a cleanup project around the school’s neighborhood. Volunteers from Santander and The Reading Eagle assisted the YMCA Central Branch in painting a gym, while volunteers from East Penn Manufacturing volunteered in projects at the Salvation Army.

Employees at A&T Chevrolet-Subaru put down their razors to raise $300 for cancer research through online and in-store donations for No-Shave November - a web-based, nonprofit devoted to cancer awareness and raising funds to support cancer prevention, research, and education. In addition, A&T’s employees and customers, in coordination with Grand View Health, provided both material needs and fun gifts to the families of three patients undergoing cancer treatment through the A&T Chevrolet-Subaru Holiday Cheer Campaign.
