  • It's a credo. A mission. A goal. A constant reminder that when we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all. We build the strength of our neighborhoods. We bolster the health of our communities. And we change the lives of those who walk by us every day.

About Day of Caring

The United Way Day of Caring is the largest one-day volunteer event in central West Virginia. It promotes the spirit and value of volunteerism and demonstrates the power of LIVING UNITED. The Day of Caring generates positive community relationships and helps to develop contacts between volunteers, agencies, and workplaces. This annual event gives each of us an opportunity to roll up our sleeves and work together to make a difference in nonprofit agencies in our community, and for the people they serve.  This year's Day of Caring is on Wednesday, September 20, 2017.

Following a Kick-off rally, teams will complete much needed tasks such as painting, cleaning, landscaping, gardening and mentoring youth. Last year, 625 sets of helping hands volunteered 3,750 hours benefiting 47 central West Virginia projects. Join your friends and neighbors this September and be a part of something big—Day of Caring 2017.
