Day of Caring

Due to COVID-19, our annual Day of Caring will look a little different this year.

There will be three options for volunteering:

  1. OUTDOOR PROJECTS: 3 hour limit (volunteers will not use agency restrooms, kitchens, etc.), volunteers bring their own tools/equipment, MUST be able to practice social distancing.
  2. VIRTUAL PROJECTS: Project that can happen virtually or volunteers will be sent/can pick up activities to be completed in their own space.
  3. "ON-YOUR-HONOR" PROJECTS: UWSC will encourage volunteers do as many hours of service as they would like, we just ask that they take photos while volunteering and tag United Way's Day of Caring #DOCforUWSC in their photos. 

Projects will be posted by July 31!
