The “United Way Youth Day of Caring,” sponsored by Pennstar Bank, took place recently as nearly 250 seventh- through 12th-graders from eight schools were mobilized in 15 different partner agency sites.

Among them were honor students from Carbondale Area High School lent their muscle to the Greater Carbondale YMCA. The volunteers cleaned and organized equipment closets, cleaned the gyms and helped the preschool teachers prep for graduation. They were treated to a lunchtime cookout after all their hard work.
