Day Of Caring

A Day of Caring event brings the community together while demonstrating the power of volunteering. Local businesses partner with United Way of Haldimand and Norfolk 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.

Day of Caring

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.

“When the CNIB started a Talking Book Club at T.B.’s local public library, he was keen to find others like himself, to share in stories and learn more about the world through literature. Through regular weekly lessons in Orientation and Mobility, he was able to learn a safe walking route from his home to the library, so that he could not only attend the Talking Book Club on his own, but visit the library whenever he pleased without relying on others to guide him. This gave him a new sense of confidence, freedom, and independence in his life, and connected him with his community than ever.”

United Way of Haldimand and Norfolk organizes Day of Caring events year round, as required. If you’re interested in participating, please contact George Araujo at [email protected]
