United Way Day of Caring Coming Soon
Submitted by Savannah Patterson

UWD imageNewport News, Virginia (July 5, 2018)- United Way’s Day of Caring is a long standing tradition that kicks off the annual campaign and has joined caring volunteers with community agencies, schools and organizations in volunteer opportunities for years. Together, the partnerships create stronger communities and healthier people through a wide variety of service projects. This year’s Day of Caring is set or Friday, September 7th, 2018.

Help spread kindness and make change this year by signing up to volunteer for Day of Caring 2018. Projects completed through United Way’s Day of Caring will allow local agencies to complete projects most groups could not undertake on their own. Every project is a change to make connections to create a better place to live.

Last year, in our service area, nearly 60 projects were completed by over 800 volunteers, making Day of Caring one of the largest single-day volunteer events in our community. This year, United Way volunteers will be organizing, gardening, landscaping, painting, packing food, building and more. No group is too big or too small and every helping hand counts; there are projects available for all skill levels.  For more information, a current list of projects, and to sign up to volunteer for Day of Caring, visit:
