What is Day of Caring?

Day of Caring is a volunteer-oriented event which encourages volunteerism in our community by helping people and non-profit agencies in need.
It is also an exciting day that offers a unique opportunity for businesses, employees and individuals to participate in making a difference, and to see first-hand how their donations to United Way are benefiting the lives and vitality of our community.
What kind of projects?

Projects could include painting, sorting donated food for distribution, assisting homebound senior citizens, painting hydrants, landscaping and much more.
