Upcoming Events

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 25, 2021.  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.

Each year, United Way of Portage County hosts a workplace campaign to collect donations from those working and living in our community, so we can provide funding to over 40 programs and services. Our 2021-2022 Campaign Kickoff event – Unite at the Drive-In - will be held on October 6th at Midway Drive-In in Ravenna! The event will feature stories of community impact, recognition of top campaigns, stories of the COVID-19 impact, snacks, raffle baskets and movie showings.

 

If you or your business are interested in sponsoring the event, please contact Julia Colecchi at 330-297-1424 Ext. 3 or juliac@uwportage.org.
