United Way Day of Caring

United Way’s Largest Lake County Volunteer Event

The Day of Caring is UWLC’s largest event, set for this Wednesday June 22nd! Over 600 volunteers head out into the community to help organizations with projects, large and small.  We are excited to personally assist the Painesville United Methodist Church! Relocating their archive room has been on their ‘to-do’ list, and Wednesday we will get the job done.

Day of Caring

The premise of Day of Caring is to assist Lake County organizations with limited resources, in completing projects that would otherwise go undone.  Non-profit organizations can submit projects nominating their clients, individuals in need or other organizations that are in need of assistance.  Companies and individuals volunteer labor and skills – and collectively, the UWLC aids in coordinating any necessary supplies.  The UWLC Day of Caring covers anything from moving, cleaning, painting and more!

About The United Way of Lake County

Day of Caring is just a single event – The UWLC serves our community daily in a variety of ways! From food assistance and drives, to youth mentoring programs, leadership development and more.  The common goal is to better our communities, and help individuals when they need it most.  The Evaluations and Investment panel conducts extensive research, identifying organizations and individuals that need assistance – So volunteers and donors can confidently give to deserving parties.

We have partnered with UWLC in many projects, including food collection in conjunction with our Move For Hunger campaign.  The enthusiasm and excitement is incredible, but their commitment to our community is truly unrivaled.

It’s not to late!  If you would like to volunteer or donate to the 2016 Day of Caring – Visit their website here! Working with the United Way of Lake County is a great way to get involved in your community and give back to those in need.
