United Way Day Of Caring Canceled In Daviess County Due To COVID-19

(WASHINGTON) – The United Way of Daviess County has canceled this year’s Day of Caring Event scheduled for September 14th.

United Way officials say they have been in contact with the Health Department and Daviess County is now one of the two counties (Perry) in the state with the highest number of confirmed COVID-19 cases.

United Way officials say they cannot in good conscience hold the event and pose a risk to the community.

The new plan is to complete assigned projects with businesses, individuals, and agencies independently when it is safe to do so.
