Day of Caring T-Shirts

Once again, our United Way is hosting a special food-packaging project with the goal of distributing over 60,000 meals to our local food pantries. Every T-shirt purchased will help us provide a meal to 20 people in our area!

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 18th, 2015, a record-breaking 850 volunteers took part in Day of Caring. These volunteers helped 43 area nonprofits and public service organizations with over 80 projects. An estimated 2550 volunteer hours were generously given to accomplish tasks that ranged from cleaning, painting and landscaping, to roof shingling, tree removal and electrical projects. These both large and small that would otherwise not have been done, or would have cost these organizations precious funds. The estimated value of this volunteer labor over $57,000!
