Employees from ResortQuest and Emerald Transformer recently came out to help at the Pierce Family Children’s Advocacy Center in DeFuniak Springs/Walton County through United Way’s annual Day of Caring program.

They lent a hand to clean air filters, pull weeds, sweep porches, clean the lobby, and more on the to-do list of the 15,000 square foot center.

The non-profit’s mission is to restore the lives and futures of children impacted by abuse, abandonment and neglect through a variety of free services in a child-friendly environment.
