We are looking for more companies or organizations to sign up to volunteer for our 20th Annual Day of Caring which is Wednesday, June 20.
How does Day of Caring
o Non-profit organizations submit one-day projects on behalf
of clients, people in need and/or organizations with limited resources.
o Area companies, schools, service clubs and other interested
individuals volunteer to "adopt" a project.
o Agencies and organizations collaborate to procure supplies
needed for successful completion of the project. United Way of Lake County is
not responsible for supplying materials or supplies for projects.
Projects may be large or small in scale and may involve activities such as
landscaping, painting or cleaning. Others may involve social activities such as
an outing for nursing home residents, an ice cream social with seniors or a
picnic for members of a parenting support group.
Day of Caring offers great benefits for companies and individuals and provides
corporate team-building opportunities where you'll see immediate results,
develop group work skills, develop camaraderie and friendly competition but
more importantly, Day of Caring offers the chance to give back to the community
in a tangible way.
If you or your
business/organization would like to volunteer for Day of Caring, please contact
Rich Thiedemann at 440.639.1153 or Rthiedemann@uwlc.org. The deadline for businesses to volunteer
is THIS Friday.
Next week we will allow businesses to pick and choose which projects they'd
like to adopt (First come, First served). It's encouraged that businesses visit
the project sites they adopt before hand to make sure your group is capable of
completing the project and to know what materials are needed.
