20th Annual United Way ‘Day of Caring’ is August 10
Livingston County United Way is excited to announce that The 20th Annual Day of Caring will be held on Wednesday, August 10, 2022. Volunteer and work site registrations are now open and ready for people to sign up.
Special Thank You to Griffith Realty who has signed up to be the Major Sponsor for the 2022 Day of Caring, which is the largest single-day community service event in Livingston County. One day. One Community. Amazing Results.
In 2021, we were able to bring together 563 volunteers who covered 741 shifts, to accomplish a total of 67 projects. These included assisting senior citizens with home related repairs and improvements, building wheelchair ramps, helping support project referrals from our local agencies and schools, collecting school supplies and packing 932 school backpacks, as well as organizing 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 community members are encouraged to apply for a neighbor or friend who needs extra help. Deadline for worksite projects is June 21.
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 a group. 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 June 21. Livingston County United Way 2980 Dorr Road, Brighton, Michigan 48116 · 810-494-3000 · Fax 810-494-3004 · firstname.lastname@example.org
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, a personal donation. Consider holding a food drive or personal care drive in the weeks before the event. All sponsorships and donations will be used to buy supplies needed for Day of Caring worksite projects!
