Day of Caring planned for Nov. 7
By By Leada Gore, Hartselle Enquirer
Hartselle residents are asked to open up their hearts and their cupboards for this year’s annual Day of Caring.
The City of Hartselle and Hartselle Beautification Associa-tion are co-sponsoring the ninth annual Caring Day Nov. 7. Residents are asked to leave canned goods beside their mailboxes on that day. Items should be left at least five feet away from the recycling bin.
Canned goods may also be placed in drop-off bins until Nov. 7 at the following locations: City Hall, Hartselle Utilities, Joe Wheeler EMC, the William Bradford Huie Public Library, the Chamber of Commerce, Hometown Grocery, the Hartselle Enquirer, Sparkman Civic Center, both Fire Stations and all banks in Hartselle. Hartselle Schools will also be participating.
Volunteers are also needed to help with the pickup of items on Nov. 7. Call City Hall at 773-2535 to volunteer. All collected items will be taken to the Caring Place to help needy families during the holiday season. The Caring Place serves some 900 families a year, most of which are from Hartselle. They serve an additional 2,709 individuals, as well as victims of recent hurricanes.
