Day of Caring brings Ottumwa volunteers together
OTTUMWA, Iowa —
Ottumwa volunteers put a little elbow grease into nearly a dozen community projects Wednesday.
It was part of the United Way of Wapello County’s annual Day of Caring, which brings the community together to improve the quality of life in the City of Bridges.
KTVO caught a group of volunteers in action Monday, at the Ottumwa Family YMCA
Some did a little landscaping, others painted the gym, and a few more worked with kids in the daycare center.
The event reached other parts of Ottumwa, from the community garden, to home building with Habitat for Humanity.
