Volunteers Unite

Day of Caring is a day of work and fun to aid local nonprofit health and human service agencies in Portage County (must be an IRS certified  501(c)3). Your employee group could help clean up playgrounds, do some painting, read to children, deliver meals or a variety of other projects. Whenever possible, groups are matched with projects that best fit their interests, skills and geographic preferences.

Where Would We Volunteer?

There are project sites at United Way affiliated agencies and other nonprofit organizations throughout Portage County. Every effort will be made to match your group with a project that fits your interests and skills.

How Do I Benefit?

In addition to making our community a better place to live, work and raise a family, employers and employees often discover that working together on a Day of Caring project enhances communication and fosters teamwork within their company.
