Day of Caring

A Great Day of Giving Back

In 2015, we helped over 1100 volunteers from 40 companies complete 106 projects to serve 44 nonprofit organizations! Please join us to do even more this year!

Day of Caring was established to promote the spirit of volunteerism, increase awareness of local human service organization and demonstrate how people working together for the common good can accomplish great things. It’s the largest day of volunteering in the Pioneer Valley, and it’s the perfect chance both to help a nonprofit in need of a few extra hands and to unite your staff around a common goal.

The United Way of Pioneer Valley organizes this day, connecting local volunteers in the community with nonprofit organizations and schools to complete tasks such as landscaping, painting, gardening and direct community support. Participating in a Day of Caring promotes workplace unity, builds morale, and shows leadership in the community. If your company would like to coordinate a team of volunteers, we can connect you to local opportunities that fit your interests.
