Building a Stronger Community, Together

Washington County's Single-Largest Volunteer Effort

Join us on September 16, 2021

What Is The Day of Caring?

The Day of Caring is the single largest 1-day community service effort in Washington County, MD. With the help from local sponsors and businesses, as well as the mobilization of hundreds of local volunteers, our community rallies together to create positive change. United Way facilitates Day of Caring projects that are designed to serve our community's most vulnerable residents including the elderly, disabled, low-income, and military veterans at no cost to them. Many nonprofit organizations are also supported through this event which allows them to continue focusing on serving the needs of Washington County. Our residents and nonprofit organizations need our help to make their locations safer and more comfortable for those inside. 

Day of Caring projects involve a variety of services and can include minor home safety repairs, painting, cleaning, tidying, landscaping, gardening, and more!


**Covid-19 Update: Out of an abundance of caution, residential applicants will only be considered for exterior projects. Nonprofit applicants may be considered for interior and exterior projects on a case-by-case basis.**
