The United Way of Eastern Maine is holding its annual two-day volunteer event, with a variety of projects to choose from. This Friday and Saturday, folks can take part in a variety of activities, including doing some gardening at Sarah's House!

Sara's House opened its doors this month to cancer patients receiving treatment. Each patient that stays there receives a quilt and the house itself is set up almost like a bed-and-breakfast, offering a warm and inviting atmosphere for folks going through one of the toughest challenges of their lives. This Saturday, 20 volunteers are needed to do some gardening at the facility in Holden. And that's just one of nine volunteer projects offered during 'Make a Difference Day Eastern Maine.'

Folks interested in taking part can also choose from things like raking leaves at Oak Hill Cemetary or at the Brewer Auditorium. Help with the installation of the first Born Learning Trail in Brewer. And the United Way can use some help with painting, preparing mailings, and organizing the thrift store.
