Week of Caring is a mobilization of volunteers to celebrate the spirit of giving through service, by providing meaningful volunteer opportunities to individuals in our community. Volunteer teams choose a local organization’s project to work on. No matter what your interest or skills, there is an opportunity for you to get involved. Some projects may include painting a room, cleaning out a flowerbed, or sorting canned food.
Area businesses will match employee interests to the requested tasks/projects and form volunteer teams. Projects and volunteer teams will be matched up based on interest, number of volunteers, and time availability. United Way will contact both the business and agency and exchange contact information with the point persons. The point persons will then be responsible for contacting each other to confirm details (i.e., what day the project will be completed, what materials are required and who will bring what). The projects must be completed sometime during Week of Caring, June 6-13, 2014.
Businesses, employee groups from local corporations, church groups, youth groups, civic and philanthropic groups, United Way supporters, and any caring individual can participate. Everyone is welcome to perform community service tasks to help local organizations/agencies in need.
