Day of Caring – We need you!

Calling all volunteers! Friday, October 12, 2018, is our annual Day of Caring, where thousands of caring people come together for our community. We are seeking volunteer teams to come together across DeSoto, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pinellas and Sarasota counties to help community agencies, schools and other organizations in need of help.

Want to help?  Form a team of 4 or more people which can be friends, coworkers, classmates, neighbors, etc. and contact us at We’ll send you the information on registering your team and alert you when it’s time to choose your Day of Caring project. From weeding and planting at a neighborhood school, to scrubbing and painting the walls at a daycare, conducting mock interviews for low-income job seekers or helping to put together a résumé; you and your team can help us build a better Suncoast region.

Last year, 42 company teams with more than 2200 volunteers completed Day of Caring projects with United Way.  We hope to see many familiar faces (and some new ones) again this year for Day of Caring.
