Day of Caring
2017 is the 25th year that United Way of Wyoming Valley has sponsored its annual "Day of Caring," a day when hundreds of representatives of business, industry, education and healthcare join other private citizens to come together as volunteers, roll up their sleeves, and set to work helping nonprofit and charitable organizations throughout the Wyoming Valley area with projects which their limited budgets just can't cover. Day of Caring 2017 will be on May 25th, so please save the date!
In a record-setting volunteer turnout for United Way of Wyoming Valley’s Day of Caring on May 25th, 2016, over 949 volunteers from 68 organizations completed 56 community projects at 41 local agencies. Those volunteers were supported by an additional 200+ who did preparation work for Day of Caring projects. Those volunteers included local school students who created items for children’s preschool literacy kits and assembled hygiene kits for distribution to organizations who help the homeless. When all Day of Caring efforts are combined, a total 1,168 volunteers contributed 5,845 volunteer hours with an estimated value of $137,708.
