Day of Action helps local treatment facility by building a solution for problems caused by rain

Maryland

For United Way’s Day of Action, volunteers stepped up to help make an impact on Lasting Change. 

Lasting Change is a treatment facility for those recovering from substance abuse.

The building had a problem at the front door with recent rainfall coming in and flooding the entrance, making it a safety hazard for the 60 women living there.

For United Way’s Day of Action, volunteers from the highway department and parks and Rec, built a new entrance to fix the problem. 

“It’s a health-related organization. Our focus area, one of our focus areas, is health. It is a need in our community that needs to be met and they are working hard to do that,” said Kathy Saxman, director of community impact and investment at United Way. 

All the materials to do the project were donated by Lowe’s.
