United Way of Chatham County Day of Service

Posted on: August 25, 2021

On September 15th, United Way of Chatham County will be hosting its 2021 Day of Service. This event will make a huge impact on the Chatham County nonprofit community!


This year, CORA is one of the partner agencies benefitting from this event. CORA is beautifying our space and planting a small community garden under the guidance of four local master gardeners. We will be landscaping our grounds with mulch, bulbs, fruit trees, and a variety of plants and herbs. We are looking for volunteers to help dig rows/mounds to create a small garden, including preparing soil and planting seasonal vegetables in the garden. Volunteers are encouraged to bring any of the following tools they have on hand: tiller, shovels, hoes, rakes, a post hole digger, and a wheelbarrow. To sign up, please visit


Other organizations and their projects are:


  • Boys & Girls Club Wren Family Center – outdoor enrichment and facility beautification and playground updates
  • Chatham CARES Pharmacy, Smith and Buckner Funeral Home, and Siler City Police Department – food drive and drug take-back event
  • Chatham Education Foundation – book sort and distribution
  • Chatham Trades – fence installation
  • Chatham Habitat for Humanity – community build
  • Salvation Army – Angel Tree preparation
  • Primrose School of Chapel Hill at Briar Chapel – school supply drive for students of Chatham County Schools


We hope to see you on September 15th!
