WHITLEY COUNTY — The United Way of Whitley County’s 16th annual Day of Caring will take place on Tuesday, Sept. 24.
As the largest volunteer event in Whitley County, Day of Caring promotes the spirit and value of volunteerism, increases awareness of local human service agencies and demonstrates what amazing things people can accomplish while working together to make Whitley County a better place to call home. Last year, Day of Caring volunteers completed over 40 projects and donated nearly $40,000 in volunteer labor.
Project applications for Day of Caring are available online at www.unitedwaywhitley.org/day-of-caring. As The United Way strives to create a positive impact in the areas of health, education and financial stability, the organization is looking for projects that local nonprofits may need assistance with. This event is a unique opportunity for an organization to establish relationships with local businesses, strengthen volunteers’ awareness of a mission and tackle large and small projects that might not otherwise be accomplished.
Project applications are due by July 15.
Day of Caring offers amazing opportunities for individuals or groups of volunteers to connect in the community. It provides a way to give back to the community in tangible, highly appreciated ways. Volunteer registration will open on Aug. 5.
