Applications are now open for the 2017 Day of Caring projects. If your non-profit organization has a project that has been put on the back burner; or if you have had to delay the project's completion because you do not have enough hands on deck to complete, this may be the perfect opportunity to get it done. Follow this link to the project application and submit by Friday, August 4, 2017. Projects are matched to area companies and individuals who volunteer to provide the labor needed to complete the project. Past projects have included painting both inside and outside, demolition and re-building a porch, deep-cleaning of kitchen and facilities where families who are food insecure are fed, interactions with seniors to keep them active and engaged, brush clearing and landscaping, sprucing up space for homeless families, and many, many more projects. Please consider being a part of this community-wide Day of Caring.
Education. Income. Health. The building blocks of a successful life.
Advancing the Common Good
Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health.
That’s why United Way’s work is focused on the building blocks for a good life:
- Education – Helping Children and Youth Achieve Their Potential
- Income – Promoting Financial Stability and Independence
- Health – Improving People’s Health
Advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help all of us. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy.
United Way’s goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of these problems. Living united means being a part of the change. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future. Give. Advocate. Volunteer. LIVE UNITED.
