Day Of Caring.
United As One,
We Change the Story of Many.
The Barry County United Way is committed to our community and continuing our Day of Caring activities in a safe and effective manner. We are excited to be able to offer many different ways to get involved this year as we expand our typical Day of Caring options to give businesses and local organizations the opportunity to participate in our NEW “Caring in Action” option. We will still be hosting a small amount of “face-to-face” opportunities with social distancing and state guidelines in place; however, we understand that this will not work for many. See the enclosed information for this exciting new way to volunteer during our Day of Caring events.
Last year approximately 510 volunteers completed just over 2,000 hours of volunteer service during our annual Day of Caring! Day of Caring and Caring in Action bring together our local community members, businesses, organizations and churches to show a UNITED front of volunteer service. No matter that your choice is, as a community we can come together to show our residents that despite what our economy may look like, we are coming together as one.
The traditional Day of Caring projects will take place Thursday, September 17th and Saturday, September 19th, 2020. 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.).
Caring in Action projects are more flexible and can be adapted to a timeframe that works best for your business and/or organization.
Each volunteer will receive a Day of Caring t-shirt as a sign of our appreciation.
