United Way Day of Caring is the largest, single-day volunteer effort in our community!  In 2019, 800+ volunteers donated 5,000 hours of their time, rolled up their sleeves to landscape, paint, reorganize, harvest, build & refurbish at 60 different projects. Others visited, played games and took meals to the home bound.

For the nonprofit organizations here in our community, this is a great opportunity to not only get projects done on site but also, a great way to have volunteers get connected with their organization.  Volunteering is often the gateway to long standing sustainable relationships and potentially new donors.
