WRAP-UP
 
Saturday, September 9th was rain or shine for River Cities United Way's Day of Caring event, which began at 6 AM with a little over 185 volunteers forming nearly 33 teams canvasing designated areas to pick up trash like plastic bags, bottles, cans and other litter and debris throughout the community.
 
A special landscaping project took place on Stockton Hill Road with the assistance of Team Fed-Ex, Mike Wagner, and Angela Lieber.  "Our community is very blessed to have so many selfless individuals, businesses, and clubs that give back so much of themselves each year," says Dawn Darby, RCUW's Kingman Area Manager.
 
River Cities United Way would like to thank The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for providing breakfast for the volunteers, Joni Millin and C.A.R.E. (aka Sandbox Committee), C. Russell and the Clean City Commission, Kingman PD for assisting with removing hazardous and suspicious materials, Smith's Food & Drug for donating water, both Safeways for donating Ice and McKee Foods (Little Debbie) for providing snacks!
