KINGMAN - The Second Annual Day of Caring communitywide cleanup gets under way at 6 a.m. Sept. 12.

Organized by the River Cities United Way, the city of Kingman's Clean City Commission and the Sandbox Beautification Committee, the inaugural cleanup last year attracted more than 300 volunteers.

"We really appreciate the community and its volunteer attitude," said event coordinator Laura Hansen with River Cities United Way.

Hansen said any families, businesses, civic clubs, churches and other groups are encouraged to get involved by registering team.

Those interested in volunteering should register online at www.RiverCitiesUnitedWay.org. Sign the waiver anytime between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Hansen said United Way would assign an area so teams know where to be at 6 a.m.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will provide breakfast in the parking lot of Mohave State Bank, 2202 Hualapai Mountain Road.

"United Way really appreciates the community's support," said Hansen. "This is a great way to give back."
