Day of Caring and MEGA Food Drive

United Way of the Eastern Panhandle will hold the 23rd Annual Day of Caring on Tuesday, September 12, 2017. Day of Caring offers businesses, individuals, organizations and civic clubs the opportunity to help local nonprofit agencies accomplish much-needed projects during one day of organized volunteerism. Hundreds of volunteers will come together on United Way's Day of Caring to volunteer their time at service projects throughout Berkeley, Jefferson and Morgan counties. 

This incredible effort to serve our community represents a close partnership between United Way of the Eastern Panhandle, our nonprofit agencies, community partners, sponsors and volunteers who stand up to make a difference.

In conjunction with the Day of Caring, United Way’s Emerging Young Leaders (EYL) group coordinates the Mega Food Drive. The drive, designed to collect non-perishable food for area food pantries will be held in the weeks leading up to Day of Caring. Food donations will be collected on the Day of Caring. Area businesses will collect food at their locations and each of the three school systems in Berkeley, Jefferson, and Morgan counties will participate through school-based drives.
