More than 1,500 volunteers needed for 22nd annual Day of Caring

The 22nd annual Day of Caring is happening on Sept. 28, and United Way of Santa Barbara County is in need of volunteers for what the organization says is the largest single-day event in the Tri-Counties.

During the event, volunteers will help more than 40 Santa Barbara County non-profits, schools, and churches with various tasks including gardening, tree planting and dog shelter cleaning.

The day kicks off at 8 a.m. with a breakfast at the Page Youth Center in Goleta.

After the breakfast, volunteers will head out to various community service assignments in the county.

Students who participate qualify for four hours of community service, and all volunteers who register before Aug. 30 will receive a free T-shirt.

United Way estimates that last year's volunteer hours of community service were worth $275,000.
