Day of Caring: JULY 26, 2017
The United Way Day of Caring is a structured volunteer opportunity that provides participants with a peek at volunteering. As part of the Day of Caring, businesses and organizations can make a commitment to offer their employees a chance to "step away from their desks" to provide hands-on, volunteer labor for a wide variety of projects.
Volunteer teams wishing to participate in the Day of Caring can select their projects here: 2017 DAY OF CARING PROJECTS LIST - DOWNLOAD HERE starting June 7th on a first come, first serve basis. After reviewing the list, email your project selection along with the name of your organization to firstname.lastname@example.org. Projects will be assigned based on the order in which the requests are received.
Following in line with United Way’s Community Impact focus, all projects will impact issues in Education, Income, Health, and Safety Net. Once a project has been chosen, teams can complete the Company Commitment Form and Participant Release Forms to submit to United Way (downloads available below). As well, a Volunteer Project Planning Guide can be downloaded to assist in planning for your project.
Nonprofit organizations wishing to submit a Project Proposal can do so by downloading the application below and submitting to email@example.com by the end of June.
The impact is immediate, but the experience will last a lifetime!
