United Way Day of Caring Volunteers Spruce Up Sidewalks and Gardens

United Way Day of Caring 2017Volunteers from M&T Bank and ITT Enidine of Orchard Park descended on Bertrand Chaffee Hospital and Jennie B. Richmond Nursing Home as part of the United Way of Buffalo and Western New York’s annual Day of Caring on August 16.

Starting at the hospital entrance, the group made its way down the sidewalk, tearing out weeds and building up garden areas as they went. The mild weather and slight breeze made their work go quickly.

This event brings teams of enthusiastic volunteers together with non-profits to tackle small and not-so-small projects. For BCH and JBR, it meant outdoor painting, trimming, weeding, mulching, edging, and general landscaping.

Thank you to all the participants and to the BCH maintenance team for its support with supplies and direction.
