Day of Caring 26
The United Way of West Central Connecticut, serving the communities of Bristol, Burlington, Plainville and Plymouth, will celebrate its 26th Annual Day of Caring on Friday, May 19, 2017.
This annual community-wide volunteer event is a chance for individuals to give, advocate and volunteer. It’s a day to join hands, open your heart and find your voice. It’s an opportunity to show the community how to Live United.
Day of Caring is an annual United Way sponsored event offering hundreds of people the opportunity to volunteer at non-profit agencies in our community. Day of Caring began in 1992 as a way to help employees of local corporations interact with human service agencies and has grown since then. While United Way promotes community service volunteer efforts year-round, this day brings hundreds of people together to make a difference in their community.
Last year, approximately 600 volunteers participated in Day of Caring. United Way is again looking for generous individuals who can donate their time and talents. Time commitments range from a few hours to all day, and we have projects both big and small!
If you and/or your company would like to participate, please fill out the attached form and return it to the United Way by Friday, April 21, 2017. We will assign and confirm your community service project(s) by May 12th.
