Who makes this happen?
• We are thrilled that PNC Bank has returned as the sponsor for the 24th year. Their sponsorship covers the breakfast, t-shirts, admin costs.
No donated dollars to the United Way campaign are used to underwrite any Day of Caring costs.
• In addition to our title sponsor, PNC Bank, we also like to thank LOWES and HOME DEPOT for their continued support with paint and other materials.

The key to the Day of Caring’s success is volunteers… where do they come from.

• There would be no Day of Caring without the hundreds of volunteers, many of whom participate year after year.
• Penn State students, staff, athletic teams
• Teams from local businesses
• Bald Eagle, Bellefonte and State College students
• Individuals/Couples/Families
