Volunteers Spruce Up Schools for New Year07/19/2019 Volunteers were out in force Thursday cleaning, painting and sprucing up the landscaping at nine Fort Wayne Community Schools buildings. It was a special Day of Caring sponsored by United Way of Allen County. Employees from four local businesses spent the day getting the schools in shape for the new school year, which begins Tuesday, August 13. United Way’s official Day of Caring takes place Wednesday, August 21st. But because school will be in session, FWCS and United Way partnered with local businesses for a special summer Day of Caring.
