Day Of Caring.
Because of you,
Thursday, September 16 & Saturday, September 18, 2021
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 again be able to offer many different ways to get involved this year as we continue to expand our typical Day of Caring options. We will still be hosting our traditional “face-to-face” opportunities as well as bringing back our “Caring in Action” non-traditional options. Also take note of our 9/11 Day of Service opportunity as we honor the 20th Anniversary of those we lost during the terrorist attacks on America.
Last year over 400 volunteers completed just over 1,800 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 16th and Saturday, September 18th, 2021. 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.
