Day of Caring Returns in 2022!
United Way Blackhawk Region's Day of Caring returns live and in-person this year on Wednesday, September 14. After two years of pandemic-related changes, Day of Caring is back and better than ever!
Hosting a Day of Caring project is open to ALL nonprofits, not just United Way Funded Program Partners. This includes local nonprofit agencies, service clubs, public schools, municipal partners, and community organizations in the Blackhawk Region. See answers to frequently asked questions here.
Corporate partners that facilitate United Way workplace / employee giving campaigns are invited to submit volunteer Day of Caring teams. This hugely popular event is orchestrated annually by United Way and serves as a value-add to nonprofits, as well as our generous partners in the private sector.
Day of Caring is an annual day of action where corporate teams of volunteers roll up their sleeves to work on half-day and full-day projects, that local nonprofits may not have the financial or labor resources to tackle.
Registration is open! Day of Caring projects and teams may register up until the deadline of 5 p.m. on Friday, August 12, 2022. Due to supply chain challenges for Day of Caring t-shirts, this deadline is firm.
Day of Caring projects are hosted at nonprofits and other community organizations across the Blackhawk Region (Rock County, WI and northern Winnebago County, IL).
Prior to Registration:
✔ The registration form will ask for the Volunteer Team Lead and their team members' names, email addresses, t-shirt sizes, and breakfast RSVP. It's most efficient to wait to register until you've collected all of this data.
✔ Teams will be asked their preference for a half-day (morning or afternoon) or full-day project.
