As they do each year, members from Region 2 recently worked to make their greater community a better place by partnering with brothers and sisters of other unions on a community service project with the United Way of Central Mass. for its “Day of Caring.” This unique community-wide event, which was held on Sept. 15, is made up of volunteer teams who complete one-day service projects that benefit local non-profit organizations and the clients they serve. This year’s team worked on much-needed improvement projects at an area residential facility for developmentally disabled adults. It was a day of hard work made easier by camaraderie and a unified mission to help those in need.
