'Day of Caring' was an incredible event



To the editor:

What an incredible day! I'm referring to the United Way's annual Day of Caring held on Sept. 12. Having had the opportunity to visit practically all of the project sites in Jefferson County, it's difficult to find one word that adequately describes what I witnessed on that truly "magical day."

I had been a part of the United Way Day of Caring in Jefferson County since it began in 1995, and I can honestly say that it will be hard to top this fifth anniversary year. From the enthusiasm of the 600 plus volunteers to the expressions of sincere appreciation by the member agencies and individual recipients who benefited from their actions, this Day of Caring represented our community at its best working together to benefit members of our community.

Although it would be impossible to mention each organization, business and individual whose support made this Day of Caring such a success, it is certainly appropriate to mention the following: Jefferson Jazz Band and Jefferson Pop Singers, entertainment; Jefferson Memorial Hospital, Bavarian Inn and Charles Town Races & Gaming, breakfast and dinner; Bank of Charles Town, City National Bank, F&M Bank of West Virginia, Jefferson Security Bank, One Valley Bank, United National Bank, T-shirt sponsors; and, of course, Royal Vendors for providing 250-plus volunteers.

On behalf of my Day of Caring Co-Chair Bob Kutcher, the United Way of Jefferson County Board of Directors, and all of the United Way member agencies, I would like to express sincere appreciation to each business, organization and individual who helped make our fifth annual Day of Caring in Jefferson County such a huge success.

As the inscription on one of my favorite United Way coffee mug reads, a volunteer is one who works much, sleeps little, and cannot be thanked enough! That could easily describe all of this year's Day of Caring volunteers, not only in Jefferson County but in Berkeley and Morgan counties as well. Congratulations, volunteers, for a job well done!

Teresa E. McCabe, Co-Chair
