2013 Day of Caring
Our Biggest Volunteer Event of the Year
Friday, September 13th, will mark our 19th Day of Caring in the Chippewa Valley. Last year was an amazing success that saw over 420 volunteers, comprised of individuals and teams from 24 area businesses, take part. These volunteers helped 21 area nonprofits and public service organizations with well over 80 projects at 27 locations. Almost 1700 volunteer hours were generously given to accomplish tasks both large and small that would otherwise not have been done, or would have cost these organizations precious funds. Now we’re gearing up for even more projects, more volunteers, and more benefit to our community this year!

About Day of Caring
Few United Way events represent the concept of living united more than Day of Caring. Our area has seen volunteers rally to this day since 1995, promoting the spirit and value of giving one’s time to the community while increasing the awareness of local needs and services. Day of Caring brings people together, and significantly helps vital community programs and services. Day of Caring always caps off our LIVE UNITED Week, which kicks off our campaign year.
