HARRISBURG, PA – Equipped with power tools, a power washer, a door, and a healthy dose of community pride, Reynolds employees descended on the headquarters of the United Way of the Capital Region in Enola, Pennsylvania, to build a shed, install new bathroom countertops, inventory equipment, and power wash various outdoor structures. The jobs, done as part of the United Way’s Day of Caring event, will help the United Way as it carries out its 2015 campaign, which has a goal of raising $11.1 million. In particular, the new shed will house garden and yard tools that are used by volunteers to beautify communities throughout the region.
Reynolds was one of 76 companies to participate in the Day of Caring, which is the largest one-day mobilization of volunteers in Dauphin, Cumberland, and Perry counties. Nearly 1,600 volunteers participated in indoor and outdoor cleanup and painting projects to support the United Way’s mission of identifying the most pressing community needs and finding solutions to those needs.
