Day of Caring
2020 was the 28th year 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. Due to COVID-19, we had to adapt this annual event and called on the community to do individual acts of caring and kindness. Participants posted their good deeds on our social media accounts to spread much needed cheer around the Wyoming Valley. Our theme was COVID Can’t Beat Caring!
On May 15, 2019, over 850 volunteers from 65 organizations completed 50 community projects at 38 local agencies. That means a total of 5,100 volunteer hours were donated at an estimated value of $129,795.00.
