United Way of Central WV’s annual Day of Caring is a community-wide event benefiting nonprofit agencies in Kanawha, Putnam, Boone, Clay and Logan Counties. Each year, Day of Caring brings together volunteers committed to creating positive change in the lives of children, families, and seniors.
Volunteer teams, organized by local companies, schools, family members or friends, complete projects for local nonprofit agencies, schools and the community that often lack the necessary resources to tackle such important initiatives themselves.
Following a Kick-off rally, teams will volunteer across Central WV to complete much needed tasks such as painting, cleaning, landscaping, gardening and mentoring youth. Last year, 650 sets of helping hands volunteered 3,900 hours benefiting 56 central West Virginia projects. Join your friends and neighbors this September and be a part of something big—Day of Caring 2016.
