VIDEO HERE: Volunteers lend a hand during Day of Action

UNDATED – Over 275 people participated in the 2014 Greater Susquehanna Valley United Way’s Day of Action.  Landscaping, planting, shoveling and raking were all part of the volunteers’ work throughout Union, Snyder and Northumberland Counties.

Members of Congregation Beth El in Sunbury were working on projects in Selinsgrove says Rabbi Nina Mandel,  “We have been mulching and weeding and just generally tending to the new and existing tree beds on Market Street in Selinsgrove.”

The initiative is a way to help local non-profit and human service organizations, as well as bring the community together.

Randy Shroyer is a Sunbury Rotarian and was working with a group at the Degenstein Community Library in Sunbury, “As a Rotarian, it is all about service and doing things for the community.  It is a good way to team up with the United Way and a good way to help out a non-profit like the library that would have to pay someone to do this, or not do the work at all.”

Volunteers worked at several sites including the Northumberland County Historical Society, the Buffalo Valley Recreation Authority, East Snyder Community Park, HandUp Foundation and more. (Sara Bartlett)
