Click below for an up to date listing of what projects are still in need of volunteers.
Last year approximately 430 volunteers completed just over 1,700 hours of volunteer service during our annual Day of Caring! Join us on Thursday, September 12th and Saturday, September 14th, 2019 to make this years “Day of Caring” even bigger! In a show of support for our community, teams of employees from companies, ministries and local community groups across Barry County will “report to work” at area project locations. This is your opportunity to demonstrate your commitment to service and strengthen our community through volunteerism.
Day of Caring is scheduled for Thursday, September 12th and Saturday, September 14th, 2019; Thursday-immediately following the Barry County United Way Kick-Off celebration. Each volunteer will receive a Day of Caring t-shirt as a sign of our appreciation. Two shifts are available, morning (9:30 a.m. -12:30 p.m.) and afternoon (1:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m.) on Thursday and the morning shift only on Saturday (9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.). A luncheon will be provided for volunteers on Thursday only.
