Email News Alerts

Every year on the first Wednesday in May, thousands of staff and students in the Becker County high schools of Detroit Lakes, Lake Park-Audubon and Frazee-Vergas get together with local volunteers to show their community spirit in a tangible way — by helping others.


Organized by the United Way of Becker County, the annual Day of Caring has been going on since the turn of the century.
