Day of Caring
United Way of the Eastern Panhandle will hold the 25th Annual Day of Caring on Tuesday, September 10, 2019. 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.
Day of Caring will kick off with breakfasts in Morgan, Berkeley, and Jefferson Counties. Over 1000 volunteers will spend the day completing tasks at projects taking place across the Eastern Panhandle providing thousands of dollars’ worth of labor to local nonprofits.
In conjunction with Day of Caring, the Mega Food Drive generates almost three tons of food for area food banks. Participating schools, banks, and agencies collect food at their locations and volunteers distribut the items to CCAP, Berkeley County Backpack Program, Morgan County Backpack Program, and Jefferson County Community Ministries.
