Day of Caring

Be Part of a Community United in Caring!

 

For many years, volunteers have joined the Day of Caring effort to successfully meet the needs of our community.

United Way of Calvert County invites you to join local leaders, volunteers, and donors as they celebrate the 26th Annual Day of Caring while kicking off this year's Workplace Giving Campaign.

This year's Day of Caring will be scheduled for Wednesday, September 9, 2020. 

Our 26th Annual Day of Caring is an excellent opportunity to educate the business community about the vital work United Way of Calvert County partner agencies accomplish every day in the community. Day of Caring is a unique service event that affords your organization to forge relationships with local businesses and their employee volunteers who form the backbone of our collaboration with the business sector. Business volunteers enjoy participating with the staff and clients in projects that are creative , innovative and inspiring.

We want to place emphasis on forming projects that help people in our community with the basics they need to lead a good life: Education, Income & Health. 

COVID-19 UPDATE:

We understand the effects COVID-19 is having on our community, right here in Calvert County. Needs DO NOT stop during a pandemic. Our community needs to come together, now more than ever. We are actively working to restructure Day of Caring to ensure the community that Day of Caring will be as safe as possible. Due to the toll COVID-19 has taken on the economy, we will be asking agencies to provide half-day and/or full-day projects for business volunteers. We are also requiring all project sites to adhere to the most current CDC Guidelines and State Regulations that will be in effect as of September 9th, 2020. We will adjust to the changes as they continue to take place. Please stay tuned for more information.

Day of Caring is a special day in Calvert County where:

  • Thousands of dollars are saved for local nonprofit organizations through facility and grounds improvements
  • Local recipients of services feel the embrace of a community that shows they care with games and fun social activities
  • Volunteers build camaraderie with coworkers and new acquaintances in teams engaged in meaningful "hands on" projects

Those inspired through their service at area agencies are encouraged to join United Way's annual fundraising campaign. More than 600 caring community citizens engaged in last year's successful campaign that raised support for 34 agencies who received direct designations and grants, culminating in over half a million dollars. The campaign is an opportunity for local residents to support health and human service programs that positively serve our community in the areas of education, financial stability, and health. For more information on how your workplace or group can participate, please contact Kelly Chambers at (410) 535-2000 or kellyc@unitedwaycalvert.org.
