If youâ€™re looking for a way you can contribute to the community as well as find a way to better your living situation, you can â€œkill two birds with one stoneâ€ from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Saturday at United Way Day, which will be held on the site of Freedom Homes, N.C. 16, Denver.
The home manufacturer will be hosting an â€œopen air marketâ€ that will allow agencies to inform visitors of the services each agency provides, as well as allow the agencies to sell goods and/or collect items people may wish to contribute. In addition to that, food and beverages will be available as well as entertainment provided by a DJ.
Thereâ€™s an added bonus for agencies that receive funding from United Way. Unlike other events, Freedom Homes will not be charging the agencies a fee for the privilege of setting up.
â€œWeâ€™re very excited about this,â€ said Cathy Davis of the United Way. â€œThis is very important, being able to do this at no charge, especially when you realize those funds which normally would have gone for paying a fee can now be directed to helping people those agencies serve.â€
Activities and prizes will also be a part of the mix, in addition to information, food and entertainment.
Participants will be encouraged to visit six selected display homes. When they visit each home, they will receive a sticker from the agency posted at that model home. Once a card is filled with stickers, participants can then turn it in and become eligible for a grand prize basket that will include items for an entire family.
