Day of Caring

A Million Thanks!!

Centre County United Way 28th Annual Day of Caring
At the Centre Furnace Mansion and the Boogersburg School
Thursday, October 7, 2021

Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. ~Margaret Mead

Our many thanks go out to over 70 individuals, organizations and businesses who volunteered and contributed to the 2021 United Way Day of Caring at the Centre Furnace Mansion and the Boogersburg School historic sites.

We focused on outdoor garden and landscape projects this year at both sites and are especially grateful for everyone’s support and enthusiasm during these challenging times.

The Centre County Historical Society has benefited from this special day at the Mansion and then School properties for 28 years. The impact on the maintenance and beautification of the sites, seen especially in the landscape, has been immeasurable.

As part of this year’s Day of Caring, much needed tree trimming was done as well as many hours of landscape work. Both the Centre Furnace Mansion and Boogersburg School look splendid and ready for visitors!

THANK YOU UNITED WAY!
