The annual Cherokee Day of Caring will be held Thursday, May 16.  A total of 10 projects will be accomplished, one in each community.

“Cherokee Day of Caring provides an opportunity for us to join as a community and address real need in real time,” said Annette S. Clapsaddle, Cherokee Preservation Foundation executive director.  “It’s one of the most rewarding ways when can choose to serve.”

According to the Cherokee Preservation Foundation, some of the projects to be undertaken include: painting, building a shed for a handicap-resident, building a covered walkway and deck, building a new porch, and more.

As of last week, a total of 70 volunteers had signed up for the event.
