TULSA, Oklahoma -- More than 4,000 volunteers got up early for Tulsa's Day of Caring. It's the official kick-off to the United Way's 2011 campaign to raise over $24-million.

Some of the volunteers were making repairs at the Camp Tookaboochee. They were painting, clearing brush, and fixing picnic tables.

"We look forward to it every year cause we get volunteers out on our camp property and they're doing all sorts of projects for us that we just don't have time to do, don't have the manpower to do, plus we don't have the money to do, so it's great having 'em," said Vicki Proctor, Camp Services Director.

The United Way tells us Tulsa's Day of Caring is one of the largest in the country.
