TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

United Way of Tucson is looking for volunteers for southern Arizona's Annual Days of Caring on Wednesday, Oct. 19 and Saturday, Oct. 22. 

Those interested in helping improve their community are asked to register now for the community's largest volunteer event.  Every year thousands of people from area businesses, schools and community groups lend their time and energy to volunteer for projects that make a difference to the community. You can sign up as an individual or as part of a group. 

Projects range from garden projects at Gladden Farms Elementary to packing produce and bonus items at the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona, or if that doesn't interest you there is setting up signs for the "Sweat for Pets Walk/Run/Roll" event. Most projects range from 4 to 6 hours in length. 

There is something for everyone to do during the Days of Caring. 

To register click here. Registration ends on Oct. 12.

    The Salvation Army is hosting their annual Thanksgiving dinner, but they may be missing a staple. They are in desperate need of turkeys.  Right now, they only have 40 turkeys to feed 2,000 people.  That isn’t enough because last year they served 1,600 people with 300 turkeys.
