There’s still time for anyone interested in helping their community today.

United Way of Forsyth County’s annual Day of Caring begins with breakfast at 7:30 a.m. in the Lanier Technical College Forsyth Conference Center.

The meal is available for $10 per guest and will be followed by a presentation by Gerry Brown, a Forsyth resident who served as a 2012 Olympic torch bearer.

The event will also serve as United Way’s campaign kickoff event.

The annual campaign is held each fall, raising money that will be distributed to United Way’s partner nonprofit agencies the following year.

About 9 a.m., volunteers will head out to various projects throughout the community.

Ruth Goode, executive director, said she’s anticipating about 300 people to help with tasks such as cleaning, painting and organizing at various nonprofit agencies throughout the county.

Anyone wishing to help is invited to attend.

“It is a community event and we want as many as possible to participate,” Goode said. “We always have things to do.”
