Friday the 13th: Luckiest day in the Lowcountry

  • Sunday, August 25, 2013

This September, on Friday the 13th to be exact, Trident United Way encourages you to cross black cats, spill salt shakers and step on as many cracks as possible. This year’s Day of Caring, on Sept. 13, is breaking all the silly superstitions.

Day of Caring is day one of 365 days of collective impact. Trident United Way’s 10-year plan for bold community change is focused on measurably improving education, financial stability and health in the Lowcountry. Volunteerism is a key element of that plan and Day of Caring is a great way to kick-start a culture of volunteering.

On Day of Caring, schools receive a fresh coat of paint, children are mentored, meals get delivered to homebound elderly and more. Worth more than $1.5 million in labor and supplies last year, Day of Caring proves to be the luckiest day of the year for the tri-county area.

This year, thousands of local residents will leave their superstitions behind by participating in one of the hundreds of volunteer projects Day of Caring provides across the Lowcountry.

After the Day of Caring projects, the day gets even luckier with the Day of Caring Kick Back parties at select Kickin’ Chicken, Wild Wing Café and El Maguey locations. Volunteers wearing their Day of Caring shirts will receive discounts and special prizes at the kick-back parties.
