Register for Sept. 12 Day of Caring by Aug. 8
The 21st Annual United Way of Greater Stark County Day of Caring is September 12, 2014 and we WELCOME your participation. Please consider this an invitation to join the day when the United Way of Greater Stark County kicks off the annual campaign and engages eager workplace volunteers to make a big difference in our community by working at local agencies, missions, park settings and more! All projects really lead to improving lives and making new connections.
"It's Coming! Day of Action, June 21"
Day of Action is almost here! Each year, volunteers across the nation come together on June 21st to inspire people to take steps to strengthen their communities. How will you volunteer? We can think of no better way than to volunteer read, tutor or mentor – especially following a very successful Children’s Summer Reading Book Drive. You've helped put 8,526 books into the community to help children become better readers.
"Children's Summer Reading Book Drive a Success!"
"Children’s Book Drive Going Strong! Donate through May 9"
"Oh, the Places You'll Go!"
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. It is one of the sweetest holidays of all. Show your love to volunteers by honoring a friend, coworker, family member or colleague by nominating them for one of United Way's annual awards of outstanding service and volunteer work. Do you know a super volunteer in our community? Recognize them with a nomination for the Gold Key or DeHoff Award by Friday, Feb. 14!
As we say goodbye to the wonderful weekend of Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, amazing football and Black Friday shopping, we look forward to sparkling and festive holiday celebrations.
