Day of Caring T-Shirts

Once again, United Way and UnitedHealthcare are hosting a special food-packaging project in partnership with Feed My People Food Bank to support the Meal Packpack programs in our area. Every T-shirt purchased will provide help us provide over 30 milk vouchers to students in need!

Day of Caring shirts will be available at a cost of $10 for small to x-large, and $12.50 for 2X and 3X. Volunteers are not required to purchase a Day of Caring shirt, but should you have the extra dollars, we would appreciate your support!

Amazing Accomplishments Last Year

On Friday, September 16th, 2016, a record-breaking 900 volunteers took part in Day of Caring. These volunteers helped 43 area nonprofits and public service organizations with well over 80 projects. An estimated 3000 volunteer hours were generously given to accomplish tasks that ranged from cleaning, painting and landscaping, to construction, tree removal and much more. These are projects that otherwise would not have been done, or would have cost these organizations precious funds. The estimated value of this volunteer labor over $67,000!
