How does Day of Caring work?
o Non-profit organizations submit one-day projects on behalf of clients, people in need and/or organizations with limited resources. Most projects include lawn work, mulching, painting, etc.
o Area companies, schools, service clubs and other interested individuals volunteer to "adopt" a project.
o Agencies and organizations collaborate to procure supplies needed for successful completion of the project. United Way of Lake County is not responsible for supplying materials or supplies for projects.
Day of Caring offers great benefits for companies and individuals and provides corporate team-building opportunities where you'll see immediate results, develop group work skills, develop camaraderie and friendly competition but more importantly, Day of Caring offers the chance to give back to the community in a tangible way.
If you or your business/organization would like to volunteer for Day of Caring, please contact Nick Carrabine at 440.639.1131 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for businesses to volunteer is Friday, May 29.
Contact Nick Carrabine for the full detailed project list. It's encouraged that businesses visit the project sites they adopt before hand to make sure your group is capable of completing the project and to know what materials are needed.
