These scenes are from the Week of Caring sponsored by United Way of Monroe County, Community Service Council, and Bloomington Volunteer Network. Members of various organizations and businesses took time out of their day to help local social service agencies and other nonprofit organizations.

A member of the White River Central Labor Council helped build a wheelchair ramp for the Middle Way House, a domestic violence shelter and rape crisis center. United Way and Community Service Council board members planted bulbs for residents at a local low-income apartment complex. Employees from Old National Bank did yard work, painted, and planted trees and bushes for the Campbell House, a shelter for homeless families run by Shelter, Inc. Women with Will Triathlon Team members helped catalogue the music collection of WFHB, Indiana’s only community radio station. Students from Alpha Phi Omega, a co-educational service fraternity, worked together on a thematic collage for the resident lounge of Beverly Healthcare.
