Record number of volunteers expected for Project United 2016

A record number of volunteers are expected for Friday’s Project United.

The annual Paducah-McCracken County United Way event is in its eighth year, starting back in 2009. In 2015, it grew to more than 450 volunteers. Those people completed 40 projects at 22 local nonprofit agencies. This year, more than 500 people are expected to give their time and energy to volunteer with nonprofits across the county.

If you are unable to volunteer, but would like to help, you can give to the canned food drive Friday morning. If you bring more than 20 nonperishable food items between 7:15 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. on Friday to the Salvation Army Gymnasium at 2990 Trimble Street, you’ll be entered for a chance to win $250.
