United Way "Day Of Action" A Success


By Andrew Reed

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV - KTWT-TV ) Volunteers came out to give the CSI head start center a facelift in Twin Falls.

United Way of South Central Idaho joined forces with Cactus Pete's employees for the annual day of action.

Sanding, painting, and cleaning that's what volunteers are doing at the CSI Head Start Center.

"We have identified here in the community with our partnering agencies that there is a lot of work that can be done. They just need some volunteer time and effort to help to accomplish the things they need to do,” said Bill Knopp, United Way of South Central Idaho.

As Valerie Stewart scrubs away at cleaning tables, she says volunteering is about the kids and bringing a company together.

"Even though there aren't a lot of children there's a lot of work to be down in terms of repair, cleaning, and just a little sprucing up” said Valerie Stewart, Cactus Pete’s.

The day of action brings a mission by improving the building blocks for a good quality of life, involving education, income, and health.

"We've been in this area for a very long time and it never hurts to get a facelift and make things look wonderful and welcoming and nice to look at for families and children” said Rosanna Campell, CSI Head Start Center.

For Stewart and her team it's about coming together to harness the volunteer spirit and improve the conditions in which they live.
