Local non-profit agencies received thousands of dollars worth of free help today.
It's all thanks to the United Way's annual Day of Caring.
This is the 23rd year for the event.
About 5-hundred volunteers took on 35 different projects.
Most of the work is done today.
But some of it will take place over a three day period.
In all, 29 area non profit groups are being helped by the volunteers.
Alison Lebovitz is the 2012 United Way Campaign Co-Chair.
"Together they will be donating and volunteering more than 4-thousand hours of community support. You know, if we put a price tag on that, which really it is priceless, but it's close to 9-hundred thousand dollars of input into this city."
United Way agencies across the nation are also using this Day of Caring as a Day of Remembrance for the victims and survivors of September 11, 2001.
