Welcome to Days of Caring 2021 – Celebrating 27 Years!
May 3-7, 2021 & During the Week of Sept. 20.
Project Request and Volunteer Registration Deadline: April 9, 2021
Days of Caring is an annual week-long service event typically in May where individuals and employees of area corporations and small businesses lend a hand to local organizations. Those agencies in need of help submit projects, volunteer teams register to help, and the United Way of Hancock County matches up the two groups. Volunteers then head out in force to complete projects such as landscaping, organizing, painting, planning an event, cleaning, construction – whatever is needed!
Last year, because of the COVID19 pandemic, Days of Caring was postponed from May until September. We are truly thankful to those 220 corporate volunteers, service groups and individuals who still came forward, allowing us to hold a successful and inspiring event. We completed 61 projects for 16 agencies and almost 900 hours of direct service to the community with a value of more than $21,000.
Please note for the safety of our volunteers, no projects will be accepted that cannot allow for proper social distancing and safety protocols to be established.
New this year, we are excited to announce that Volunteers United will host a second Days of Caring event during the week of Sept. 20. Please stay tuned!
