United Way Day of Caring is the largest, single-day volunteer effort in our community! It will be on Thursday, September 30th 2021. This year we anticipate a mix of virtual skills based projects and potentially some in-person opportunities. Stay tuned for more information!
In 2020, the United Way coordinated a Virtual Week of Action from September 14-18, 2020. 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.
