Thurston County nonprofit organizations can receive volunteer help for hands-on projects as part of United Way of Thurston County’s 17th annual Day of Caring on September 25.
Day of Caring is an annual event where hundreds of volunteers from throughout Thurston County join local nonprofit and other community organizations to work on service projects. Participating organizations are matched with volunteers who give their time, talent and services to change our community for the better in one day. Not only does Day of Caring have a significant impact on the needs of local nonprofits, it also enables volunteers to meet new people, work as a team and gain new experiences. Day of Caring also kicks off United Way’s annual campaign which raises funds to meet local health and human service needs.
This year, United Way has partnered with the Volunteer Center of Lewis, Mason & Thurston Counties and The Evergreen State College to bring Day of Caring to a new level! In the spirit of true collaboration, Day of Caring is coordinating with Evergreen’s "Community to Community Action Day" to offer both fun and meaningful opportunities for youth, individuals and families to engage in community service.
To sign up to host a project, go to http://volunteer.united-e-way.org/volcenterlmt/agency/. The deadline for applications is August 1.
