More than 100 volunteers helped make the region a better place to live today.
It was all a part of the United Way of Roanoke Valley’s Day of Action.
It is an annual event that uses the power of volunteers around the world.
Last year, more than 418 United Ways in 21 countries served their local communities on this day.
volunteers worked on everything from building an interactive learning trail and landscaping to painting and sorting donated food for local non profits.
