Day of Caring

April 8, 2017

What is Day of Caring?

Day of Caring is a United Way event that deploys teams of volunteers on-site to Partner Agencies around the community to perform hands-on tasks.  Projects are simple enough that volunteers can accomplish the task in a three-hour time period (9am to Noon).  Examples include simple landscaping, painting, spring cleaning, or organizational projects. See more details here.

What is United Way ’s role?

United Way of Laurens County’s role is to recruit the volunteers, coordinate teams, and match those teams with projects throughout the community. In addition, our role is to contact the civic and business community regarding sponsorships to cover certain materials, such as the volunteer t-shirts. See more details here.

Why is United Way hosting this event?

United Way ’s mission statement is “to increase the capacity of people in Laurens County to care for one another”.  By hosting this Day of Caring, the community is exposed to the agencies that provide much needed health and human services to Laurens County .  It is also a chance for the community at large to get involved in making Laurens County a better place to work and live.

Thank you to our generous sponsors!
