Day of Caring 2020

United Way of Washington County will host the 29th annual Day of Caring on Thursday, September 17, 2020. Day of Caring is Washington County’s single largest community service effort. By engaging people in volunteerism, United Way works to create positive change in Washington County.  The Day of Caring is only possible with the help of hundreds of volunteers and assistance from local sponsors and businesses. In 2019, the 28th Annual Day of Caring had a record-breaking year, with 1,804 volunteers participating in 146 different projects – this was the largest turnout in history for Washington County’s Day of Caring.   This is an event that mobilizes over a thousand volunteers to work on a variety of service projects at local nonprofit organizations and homes of the elderly and/or disabled and military veterans. United Way facilitates the much-needed projects performed in the community, at no cost to the homeowners. The additional resources and volunteers allow nonprofit organizations to continue focusing on serving the needs of Washington County.

Day of Caring for Washington County, MD provides a variety of services that help individuals with home safety and minor repairs on projects that include painting, gardening and more.  In our community, there is a need for assistance to help make one’s living situation more comfortable and safer. These are the kinds of projects for which the Day of Caring is designed. Nonprofit agencies and elderly, disabled, low-income & military veteran homeowners are invited to submit project applications by July 01, 2020.
