FARMINGTON — The San Juan United Way is taking applications for its Day of Caring service projects.

The 26th annual Day of Caring will take place Thursday, Sept. 15. On that day, 300 local volunteers will work on about 80 service projects, according to a press release from San Juan United Way. The majority of those projects will be completed that day.

Nonprofit agencies in San Juan County are encouraged to submit project proposals by Tuesday, June 14 for volunteers to complete on the Day of Caring. In the past, volunteers have done landscaping projects, built raised garden beds, painted projects, built storage shelves, redesigned brochures, moved office furniture and equipment, worked on inventory and filing projects, made playgrounds more safe for children, and updated websites and Facebook pages.
