What is Day of Caring?

Day of Caring ® is a special program coordinated in your community by United Way Central. Its goal is to mobilize teams of corporate employees or individuals as volunteers, to complete meaningful, hands-on projects or compile items for care packages that will greatly assist local non-profit agencies in Fredericton, Oromocto and surrounding areas.

A Day of Caring event brings the community together while demonstrating the power of volunteering. Local businesses partner with United Way of Central NB to assist in completing projects at United Way funded agencies.  These projects vary depending on the funded agency. They may include construction, restoration, community special events or agency work. By providing a team of volunteers, companies help member agencies complete important tasks. These tasks fall outside of regular operations for the agencies.

Why should your business participate?

The Day of Caring is a unique event. It allows businesses to get directly involved in their own community. These opportunities promote team building, boost morale, and increase your company’s community profile. The Day of Caring program connects businesses with volunteer opportunities that matter to you and your community.
