CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- The United Way is trying to get people to make a positive change in their community.
More than 600 volunteers in Kanawha, Putnam, Clay and Boone counties volunteered Wednesday to help non-profit groups.
Volunteers helped paint bedrooms, hallways and a fence outside in the play yard at the Y.W.C.A Sojourner's Shelter in Charleston.
Organizers say volunteering your time out in the community, is the best way to make it a better place to live.
Volunteers were also at West Virginia Health Right and the Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club in Charleston helping out with improvement projects.
