Form a DOC team of friends, family, or colleagues!
Determine your team's interest. Sign up early to ensure your first choice of an agency project is available. Just in case, have a back up plan-- please give careful thought to your second and third choices.
Determine a team leader who will be responsible for communicating with United Way, the sponsored agency, and the volunteers.
Keep your staff and colleagues in the loop as much as possible while organizing your Day of Caring team and project participation. It is encouraged that large teams break into smaller teams to staff projects. You may choose to form teams based on department, interest, or availability. Use the company email list or internal newsletter to announce your participation in Day of Caring and to recruit volunteers. Also, feel free to pass on the Day of Caring website: www.unitedwaycalvert.org to other interested parties.
After you signed up your team, a United Way staff member will contact you with your matched interests. Be expecting a call from the agency of your choice.
Not able to put a team together? You can still make a difference! Please consider a monetary donation or collection of items such as food, baby items for nursing homes, school supplies, animal food, or household cleaners and supplies to be donated to an appropriate agency or organization.
CELEBRATE YOUR RESULTS! Encourage team members to take photos and share highlights on social media!
