Day Of Caring.
Thursday, September 14 & Saturday, September 16, 2023
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 our “Caring in Action” non-traditional/virtual options.
Last year, Day of Caring events brought together almost 500 volunteers participating in both in person and virtual opportunities (Caring in Action). Day of Caring events 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.
Day of Caring projects will take place Thursday, September 14th and Saturday, September 16th, 2023. 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.
Join us for our annual Day of Caring Luncheon! All volunteers are invited to join us for lunch on Thursday, September 14th from Noon-1:30pm at the YMCA Camp Algonquin. Come after you finish your project or get some nourishment before you head off for your afternoon project. (Open House Style).
Each volunteer will receive a Day of Caring t-shirt as a sign of our appreciation.
