The United Way of the Valley and Greater Utica Area held its annual 'Day of Thanks" on Tuesday.

United Way staff members visited ten companies and organizations involved in the 2015 workplace campaign to say thanks.

They delivered fruit baskets donated by Edible Arrangements to say "How Sweet It Is To Be Supported by You."

Executive Director Brenda Episcopo says e-mail messages and post cards were also sent to more than 6,000 volunteers and donors who took part in the campaign.

One in five people in the Mohawk Valley area request help from a United Way funded program every year.
