The United Way held a United Day of Caring day on Oct. 11 from 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Osceola Municipal Golf Course off Mobile Highway.

“United Day of Caring is one of the most exciting events of the year for me,” said Ken Davis. “This was my second year volunteering at Osceola it was way better than last year.”

Some of the members of Pensacola State College’s Student Support Services Justice League went and helped put out pine straw, plant flowers, paint the parking lot, put sand in the divots made by the golfers and cut down golf clubs to make them shorter for children to use.

“It was very gratifying to know I was helping children find another path,” said Kenny Hollinhead.

The Student Support Services worked along with PSC’s Student Government Association to help with getting the grounds ready for the community to enjoy use.

“I thoroughly enjoyed working for the community,” said Devin Justice.
