Northumberland United Way seeking jobs for 23rd Day of Caring on Friday, June 10, 2022

Northumberland United Way and The Partners in Caring are excited to announce the return of their 23rd Day of Caring on Friday, June 10, 2022.

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 more comfortable and safer. 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.

Once again, United Way, CpK Interior Products, and Cameco Corporation will be joined by employees from SABIC, Lakefront Utilities, Arclin Surfaces, Town of Cobourg, Stalwood Homes, AkzoNobel, and Home Building Centre for this day to give back.

The application period is now open for local non-profits, charitable, and community organizations to submit a job request until Friday April 8, 2022. Jobs may range from painting, cleaning, gardening, and yard work to minor repairs. Please remember that the safety of volunteers is essential and potentially dangerous jobs will not be approved.

Volunteers are vital to the success of Day of Caring. Since it began in 1998, over 2,000 volunteers have completed more than 500 jobs across Northumberland County. If you are interested in becoming a part of this incredible legacy, please consider volunteering for one of the Day of Caring projects. United Way would love for you to join them and can guarantee, it will be a day that you will look back on and feel good about. Please reach out to the United Way office to sign up.

Northumberland United Way is also always looking for new businesses to join their 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.

If you’re a non-profit charitable organization in Northumberland County and are interested in applying for work for your clients, please complete an application. Application deadline: Friday April 8, 2022. To complete the application, visit:
