Day of Caring

When you volunteer, one day can make a difference. United Way of Greater Stark County’s annual Day of Caring is our largest, one-day community service event.

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.

Day of Caring demonstrates the value of volunteerism and shows that when we work together, we can change lives.

Day of Caring is May 17, 2019

May 17 will be the largest Day of Caring yet with 715 volunteers, 42 service projects, 40 nonprofit locations and 39 workplaces participating in 12 cities.
