Northumberland County residents are getting ready to show their local love once again as they eagerly anticipate the 24th annual Day of Caring, taking place on Friday, June 2, 2023. This beloved event, organized by United Way Northumberland and the Partners in Caring, will unite over 100 enthusiastic volunteers who are dedicated to making a difference in their community.
Volunteers will generously contribute their time and skills at 30 sites across Cobourg, Port Hope, and Colborne, providing much-needed support to individuals and organizations facing challenges.
The success of the Day of Caring is largely attributed to the generous support of the Partners in Caring. United Way Northumberland extends sincere appreciation to Cameco Corporation, CpK Interior Products, SABIC, Lakefront Utilities, Arclin Surfaces, Town of Cobourg, Stalwood Homes, AkzoNobel, and Home Building Centre for their invaluable contributions, which make this event possible.
The Lions Club of Cobourg has generously donated the use of their hall and will provide a warm breakfast to all volunteers. Starbucks in Cobourg has also kindly contributed by donating coffee to energize volunteers throughout the day.
“We are thrilled for the upcoming Day of Caring, where our community comes together to make a real difference,” said Maggie Darling, Acting Executive Director, United Way Northumberland. “A big thank you to everyone participating and showing their support. We can’t wait to see each and every one of you there!”
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 safe and 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.
