Day of Caring

Day of Caring was created in response to a need in the community. United Way recognized that sometimes repairs are not completed due to health, financial, and personal restrictions or that help may be needed through volunteer labour or donated supplies to make one’s living situation safer and more comfortable. These are the kinds of projects for which Day of Caring was designed, and each year, local companies and individuals come together to volunteer their time and talents to help these groups.

The impact of this day goes far beyond the immediate completion of projects. It leaves a lasting impression on individuals, groups, and organizations, creating a positive ripple effect in our community.

United Way is also always looking for new businesses to join our important team of Partners in Caring; the sponsors behind this event, who make it possible each year. Please contact United Way directly to learn more about this opportunity for your business and employees.

United Way Northumberland and The Partners in Caring are thrilled to announce the highly anticipated return of the 25th Day of Caring, happening on Friday, June 7th, 2024. 

The application period is now open for local non-profits, charitable, and community organizations to submit a job request. The deadline to apply is Tuesday, March 19, 2024, by 4 p.m.

Thank you to the Partners in Caring who make this day possible!

“It is truly incredible to witness the level of support and dedication coming from local companies and volunteers each year.”

“I am so amazed and shocked at what you did! Thank you just does not cover the gratitude I feel. I thank you so very much for your generosity, your labour and most of all for your caring!”

“It is a truly gratifying experience to see just how much can be accomplished when a community comes together for a common goal.”
