The Day of Caring 2016 was held on October 5th in Alliance and October 6th in Scottsbluff.  Over the course of both days, United Way volunteers packaged 80,000 meals for our local communities!  Box Butte and Dawes Counties volunteers packaged 20,000 meals that were distributed to the backpack programs and food pantries in both counties.  The 60,000 meals packaged by volunteers in Scottsbluff were given to local programs that address food insecurity.
