 Livingston United Way accepting sign-ups & projects for Day of Caring

Livingston County United Way is excited to announce that volunteer sign up and work site registrations are open for Day of Caring, which will be held on Wednesday, August 11.

Griffith Realty has signed up to be the Major Sponsor for the 2021 Day of Caring, which is the largest one-day community service event in Livingston County. One day. One Community. Amazing Results.

In 2020, we were unable to hold this amazing event due to Covid, and expect an increase in project requests due to repairs/projects being postponed. The last Day of Caring event held in 2019 brought together 1,201 volunteers, to accomplish a total of 105 projects. These included assisting senior citizens with home related repairs and improvements, building wheelchair ramps, helping support 62 referrals from our local agencies and schools, collecting school supplies and distributing 1,000 school backpacks, as well as participating in local food and personal care drives.

The Livingston County United Way collects worksite proposals from local residents, seniors, schools, disabled residents and non-profit agencies. The work is often minor household repair projects, cleaning and yardwork that the homeowner is not able to do on their own. Anyone can recommend a worksite and are encouraged to apply for a neighbor or friend who needs extra help. Deadline for worksite projects is June 28. All proposed worksites are reviewed for approval by the Livingston County United Way Day of Caring Committee.

Volunteers are invited to register individually or as groups. They can designate preferences for location, type of project, special skills and specific shift times (9:00 a.m. – noon or 1:00-4:00 p.m.) or a full day commitment. Deadline for volunteer registration is July 6.

Companies, clubs and organizations are invited and encouraged to participate together. What better way to showcase an organization’s volunteer spirit while making a difference, improving employee morale and enthusiasm through team building and connecting individuals to their community and coworkers.

If you are unable to participate in this wonderful community service event but still want to help, consider a company sponsorship or personal donation. All sponsorships and donations will be used to buy supplies needed for Day of Caring worksite projects!
