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.

Join us for the 28th year of Day of Caring as we work together to change lives. Friday, May 14, 2021 we will have a curbside collection of new socks and underwear for both kids and adults.

On April 19, Pam Cook from WHBC interviewed Bill Shivers and Laura Prengaman about Day of Caring 2021. Watch it here.


On May 14, drive up to United Way’s office 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.

  • 10 AM – 2 PM: United Way of Greater Stark County
    • Parking lot on Court Avenue NW behind 401 Market Ave. N, Canton 44702. Drive-thru accessible from 4th Street NW with right turn onto Court Ave NW


    Socks and underwear are basic necessities. Because of the pandemic and related economic downturn, more families in our community are struggling with financial stability meaning it’s harder to afford items like these.

    Help us collect new socks and underwear for both children and adults.

    If you cannot join us on May 14 in-person, you can order from our Amazon Wishlist and have items delivered directly to us! Visit here


    Want to involve your co-workers and collect items as an organization? You can start collecting early and then drop-off everything on May 14 to help support Day of Caring as a team.

    Let us know you are collecting with your workplace by submitting the form below.
