United Way of NWLA preps for Day of Caring, assists families suffering from tornado damage

The United Way of Northwest Louisiana is gearing up for its annual Day of Caring.

Director of Community Impact Raavin Evans sat with KSLA to discuss the event. She says nonprofits have the chance to submit project proposals to better the community. Past projects have included writing thank-you notes, sorting food, and doing community clean-ups.

After projects are selected, 600-700 volunteers gather to complete them! Evans says the day will begin with a pep rally to get everyone pumped up and end with an after-party celebrating everyone’s hard work.

Applications for community projects will be accepted until Jan. 20. Click here to submit a proposal!

On top of these preparations, the United Way is also continuing its efforts to help the community recover from an E-F 2 tornado that hit Caddo Parish almost a week ago.

The storm led to the death of an 8-year-old and his mother and destroyed many families’ homes.

The United Way has put together a Tornado Relief Fund for home damage to assist these families. To apply for assistance or to donate to the fund, click here.
