Volunteers and local groups and businesses teamed up on Wednesday to lend a hand across the city for United Way of Greater Duluth's 19th annual Day of Caring. This year more than 20 different local non-profit agencies helped with special projects or donation drives, and over 250 volunteers participated. 

Duluth Building Trades used their skills to build a new playground for kids at the Spirit Valley Early Childhood Center. The Duluth Area Family YMCA spent day gardening with Community Action Duluth's Seeds of Success urban farming program. Adventure Zone, Grandma's Canal Park, Kohl's, and U.S. Bank lead games and served food as they hosted Valley Youth Centers' Annual Carnival for Kids.

Other projects included a Minnesota Power team cleaning up Life House, Inc., and the City of Duluth leading donation drives for Damiano Clothing Programs and Lutheran Social Service of MN.
