2016 - 60 DayS of Caring

After a short hiatus, United Way reintroduced an annual Day of Caring to Southern Kentucky in 2009. Since then, thousands of volunteers have provided tens of thousands of hours of volunteer work back to our community for local non-profits.

In 2016, in honor of its 60th Anniversary, United Way of Southern Kentucky is building upon this original concept with the introduction of 60 Days of Caring – a time starting on July 18th and ending on the day of the 60th Anniversary community celebration on September 15th.

During these 60 days, United Way is encouraging community members to do something to show that they care about our community and share their experiences via social media using #60DaysofCaring. During this time frame, United Way will also be hosting a series of volunteer project days centered around the key issues it is working to impact: Education projects will be available on July 27th, projects that impact issues in Income will be available August 10th, Health projects available on August 24th, and Safety Net projects on August 31st.

The impact is immediate, but the experience will last a lifetime!
