Day of Caring

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 that will greatly assist local non-profit agencies in Fredericton, Oromocto and surrounding areas.

This year’s Day of Caring will take place on Friday May 28th, 2021. To help adjust to Covid-19 regulations, we have expanded this year’s Day of Caring to include two new types of projects in addition to on-site projects: 1. Virtual projects will allow volunteers to share their skills from the safety of their office or homes, and 2. The collection of care packages will encourage corporate teams to collect donations leading up to our Day of Caring to meet specific needs identified by our not-for-profit community.

Why should everyone get involved?

All volunteer efforts, big and small, are vital to the well being of our community. Corporate Volunteering is quickly becoming the new “corporate investment” strategy and Day of Caring® demonstrates that by working together, local companies can make a visible and substantial impact in their community by getting involved in one of the many community service organizations that works to improve the quality of life in our communities.

Local business and corporate employees learn about the agency and services to the community, while providing the opportunity to create unique and ongoing partnerships between the corporate and voluntary sectors.

Who Participates?

Day of Caring® volunteers are teams of employees from local companies or teams of individuals, coordinated by United Way to participate in approved projects that have been submitted by local non-profit/charitable organizations.
