United Way’s Day of Caring is on September 14 this year, and there are plenty of ways for Utahns to get involved. In its 25th year, Day of Caring is celebrated in Salt Lake City, Utah County, and northern Utah. United Way has long been dedicated to serving individuals and communities across the United States and in Utah. This year’s UW Day of Caring projects – such as beautification and community cleanups – will soon be underway in Davis, Salt Lake, Summit, and Tooele counties. If your organization would like to get involved in the 25th annual UW Day of Caring, then here are some ways you can join in this incredible event:
To supplement your ongoing efforts to help the community, UW Day of Caring offers a helpful platform for local organizations and Day of Caring projects to connect with each other to increase volunteer participation and funding for these worthy efforts. You can sign up for these projects on UW’s website (under “Available Projects”) and read through other possible projects (each listing includes the scope and nature of the project, the number of volunteers needed, time details, approximate costs, and more). There are several projects across the state of Utah that are still looking for more volunteers to assist them on the Day of Caring this September 14, so be sure to check out this page to register your organization’s volunteers! For Utah County projects, click here for more information. For northern Utah’s United Way Day of Caring available projects, visit this link.
If your volunteers are participating in this year’s UW Day of Caring in Salt Lake County, then you can order them Day of Caring t-shirts. There are men and women’s sizes available in cool blue colors, with the main motto “Year of Action #BeAForceForGood” printed on the front.
