Day of Caring

United Way of Story County's Day of Caring is an annual event held the first Friday after Labor Day, following the LIVE UNITED campaign kickoff breakfast event. Businesses provide volunteers who help agencies complete projects around the county. The 2017 Day of Caring had nearly 400 volunteers come together to complete 41 projects around Story County. From painting to landscaping to cleaning to reading, when you get that many people helping, it's a true county-wide Day of Caring!

The 2018 event will take place Friday, Sept. 7.
United Way of Story County partners with the Volunteer Center of Story County (VCSC) to pair volunteers up with the available opportunities that best fit their needs and/or skills. Whether you are an agency with a volunteer opportunity that you need help with or a company that wants to give back and volunteer, we would love to hear from you for our 2018 event! Please email or call 515-268-5142.
Grants are available (up to $100) for agencies that offer a volunteer project to help cover the cost of materials. Submit a grant application by July 31.

If you have any questions, please contact Allie Prusa at or (515) 268-5142.

Thanks for your participation!
