Washington County's Largest Single-Day Volunteer Effort

What Is The Day of Caring?

The Day of Caring is Washington County, MD's largest annual single-day community service effort.  With the sponsorship of local businesses, individuals, and partners, as well as the mobilization of almost one thousand volunteers, our community rallies together to create positive change during this event.

United Way facilitates Day of Caring projects designed to serve our community's most vulnerable residents including those residents who are disabled or low-income, and our veterans and elder population. Many nonprofit organizations are also supported through this event - allowing them to continue focusing on their missions within our community. Day of Caring projects aim to improve the safety, mobility, access, organization, cleanliness, maintenance, and beautification of residential and nonprofit properties. All of these are done at no expense to our property owners or partner agencies.

Last year's Day of Caring allowed almost 1,000 volunteers to impact our community through 90+ service projects, collection drives, senior support, and delivering important health information. 

Looking for a meaningful team bonding experience? Want to give back to the community? Contact our Day of Caring coordinator to learn more about how to incorporate Day of Caring into your organization's community involvement plan.
