Companies across the Greater Danbury region from Kent down to Ridgefield have volunteered their time to make social service agencies better. Tuesday was a Day of Action in the Greater Danbury area.
Nearly 600 volunteers from 32 companies worked on 105 projects to help the United Way of Western Connecticut. Executive Director Kim Morgan says they appreciate the companies that participate because the value of service is over $100,000 in volunteer time.
In addition to the volunteer efforts, Morgan says local businesses have donated thousands of dollars worth of materials and supplies towards Day of Action projects.
Morgan says the employees like doing something different during the work day and feel good about what they leave behind.
