Throughout the year, we host an array of events. We invite donors, corporations, nonprofits, and community leaders to network, advocate, and raise awareness and support for our work.
Each year United Way of Portage County hosts its largest, organized volunteer event, the Day of Caring! This year’s event will be held on June 24, 2022. This event is held in collaboration with United Way Worldwide and it works by mobilizing more than 100 corporate and community volunteers who then lend their support to complete needed projects at approximately twenty non-profit agencies that serve Portage County.
In the past, the projects that have been completed include interior and exterior painting, yard work including spreading mulch, planting flowers, raking, etc., light construction projects and exterior building clean-up. The agencies served by these projects are extremely grateful for the help, as they may not have the staff or funds available to complete these efforts on their own. It also provides the community with the opportunity to see amazing programs at work serving residents of Portage County.
