Days of Caring

Days of Caring Volunteers

Welcome to Days of Caring 2024 – Celebrating 40 Years!

May and September 2024

Days of Caring is a special, multi-day service event where volunteers lend a hand to help local nonprofit agencies and other social service-based organizations. United Way of Hancock County matches volunteer teams from local companies and service organizations with projects submitted by agencies for help. The volunteers then head out in force to complete projects such as landscaping, organizing, painting, planning an event, cleaning, construction — whatever is needed.

Spring Days of Caring will take place May 6-10 this year. Last year, more than 1,050 volunteers provided 4,200 hours of service to the Hancock County community during Spring and Fall Days of Caring. They completed more than 120 projects, with a value to the community of about $133,500.

Fall Days of Caring: Sept. 16-18, 2024

Because of the pandemic, Days of Caring 2020 was postponed from its usual date in May until September. Volunteers and agency leaders alike enjoyed the fall weather. A Fall Days of Caring event also helped agencies wrap up projects and prepare for winter, and allowed volunteers who aren't available in the spring a chance to help. After such a widely positive response, a three-day Fall Days of Caring event returned in 2021 and 2022 and is here to stay!

These events are a great opportunity to measurably improve people's lives in Hancock County. Thank you!
