United Way of Southeast Arkansas is preparing for the 2019 Day of Caring Thursday, Sept. 26.

The agency is calling on the community, organizations and volunteers to save the date.

On the Day of Caring, United Way will help spruce up the Coretta Scott King building at Martin Luther King Jr. Park with paint and plants, according to a news release.

Volunteers who want to do other tasks may choose to read a story to children at local schools.
