United Way Centraide North East Ontario is excited to announce the 2023 Day of Caring. The Day of Caring initiative is the United Way's response to helping fulfill needs in our community. We understand that sometimes maintenance and repairs or special projects are not completed due to health, financial, and personal restrictions, or that help may be needed through volunteer labour or donated supplies. These are the kinds of projects for which Day of Caring was designed, and each year, local companies and individuals come together to volunteer their time and talents to help local organizations.
The application period is open for local non-profits, charitable, and community organizations to submit a job request. Applications must be completed and submitted no later than Friday, June 30, 2023 at 4 p.m. In order for the Day of Caring to be successful, we need your help in identifying projects you would like to be considered for this year. Jobs may range from painting, cleaning, gardening, and yard work to minor repairs . Please remember that the safety of volunteers is essential and potentially dangerous jobs will not be approved.
Submitting an application does not guarantee a spot for the day. Our volunteer committee will review each application before making any decisions on each project. Requests must be able to be completed in no longer than 5 hours. It is up to the discretion of the Day of Caring Committee to approve each application.
