Days of Caring

We believe in the power of volunteers

At United Way, volunteering is a way of life! We connect people to volunteer opportunities all year long, but for two days in September, we bring it to the next level. During Days of Caring, we connect hundreds of volunteers with dozens of nonprofits for two days of hard work, laughter, and making a change in our community. Days of Caring is the perfect team-building opportunity for families, coworkers, teams, and clubs. It’s also a great way for individuals to deepen their understanding of local human service needs, find a cause they care about, roll up their sleeves, and get to work making a difference!

Mark your calendars for MONTH of Caring 2020!

As you can imagine, placing volunteers throughout the county to support our local nonprofits will look much different this year.  In fact, it’s going virtual the entire month of September for our very first Month of Caring!

Our mission remains the same in 2020: to help volunteers develop a deep understanding of nonprofit agencies and give back to their local Addison County community.  However, to keep our community healthy and safe, volunteers will do this individually throughout September, in their Month of Caring t-shirts. We will request photos from volunteers, and at the close of the month, will host a virtual “appreciation party” for all participants and sponsors on September 30, 2020 that will include a video of the month’s participants in their t-shirts!

If you are a non-profit organization and have a virtual need that you would like Month of Caring volunteers to help with, please register here.

If you are an individual who is interested in volunteering for Month of Caring, please register here (free t-shirt for volunteers!).
