Day of Caring

A number of NFTA employees from across the company participated in the United Way’s annual Day of Caring on Wednesday, August 17. This was the 19th year of the event that sends teams of volunteers out into the community tackling a variety of challenges for people and organizations in need.

This year’s NFTA team worked with Habitat for Humanity, which is building a set of homes on Fox St. in Buffalo. Once complete, the homes will be available to families in need of safe, affordable living space. NFTA volunteers hung vinyl siding and assisted electricians in laying wire. The work was hot, hard and still, somehow, lots of fun.

The Day of Caring attracted nearly 3,200 volunteers from 149 different companies around the region.
