Day of Caring

When you volunteer, one day can make a difference. United Way of Greater Stark County’s annual Day of Caring shows just that.

This year, Day of Caring looks a little different than usual. It is usually our biggest one-day community service event, showing that when we work together, we can change lives. Help us make it just as big as previous years! Join us September 11 for a curbside collection of our community’s greatest needs: food, masks and cleaning supplies.



On September 11, drive up to any of our collection sites and drop off items with our minimal contact drive-thru. For no contact, place the items in your trunk or backseat and volunteers will be available to assist so you can stay inside your car. Several convenient locations:

  • 10 AM – 2 PM: United Way of Greater Stark County
    • Canton: Parking lot behind 401 Market Avenue North,  44702

  • 9 AM - 12 PM: Huntington Bank
    • Alliance: 2 West State St., 44601
    • Navarre: 1210 N Main St., 44662
  • 9 AM - 12 PM: Cutler Real Estate
    • Belden Village: 4618 Dressler Rd., 44718
    • Carrollton: 704 Canton Rd., 44615
    • North Canton: 203 Applegrove St NW, 44720


  • Food – canned meats, canned fruits & vegetables, boxed pastas & rice, canned soup & beans, and cereal
  • Masks (disposable, fabric/reusable, adult & child sizes)
  • Cleaning supplies – hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes and disinfectant cleaners


Want to involve your co-workers and collect items as an organization? You can start collecting early and then drop-off everything at any of the locations September 11 to help support Day of Caring as a team.

You can promote the collection to your team with the poster below.
