May 3, 2019 –  The Pushor Mitchell United Way Day of Caring® was a great success once again. This year, Pushor Mitchell LLP shut down their office to send over 80 employees out into the community to volunteer at 10 non-profit agencies ranging from West Kelowna to Lake Country. In total, over 240 volunteer hours were provided to community agencies saving them in staffing and resource costs.

Every year, United Way brings together multiple volunteer groups to tackle projects at local non-profit agencies. Typical projects include spring yard clean-up, painting, and other labour intensive projects that many non-profits do not have the time or resources to complete on their own.

Thank you to everyone at Pushor Mitchell LLP that took time out of their Friday afternoon to volunteer at these non-profit agencies and help make an impact in the community.

BACKGROUND:

The Pushor Mitchell United Way Day of Caring® is an annual community-wide event where United Way coordinates teams of volunteers from the local area and matches them with projects at local charities. Volunteer teams take on light construction, gardening and maintenance tasks while gaining behind-the-scenes insight into the work of local non-profit agencies. Multiple projects are completed resulting in hundreds of hours invested in just one day. United Way also organizes custom days of caring throughout the year.
