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 hands-on opportunity connects volunteers and businesses with local nonprofits, where they complete service projects throughout our community. For employers, it provides a remarkable team-building experience, and for volunteers, it offers a firsthand look at the important work these nonprofits contribute to our area.

As our largest, one-day community service event, this event demonstrates the value of volunteerism and shows that when we work together, we can change lives.

The next Day of Caring is Friday, May 15, 2020!


2019's Day of Caring was our largest turnout yet with 715 volunteers, 42 service projects, 40 nonprofit locations and 39 workplaces participating in 12 cities. Help us make 2020 even bigger!
