Welcome to Days of Caring 2023 – Celebrating 29 Years!
May and September 2023
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.
This year, Spring Days of Caring took place from May 8-12, with over 900 volunteers providing 3,600 hours of service to the Hancock County community. They completed more than 100 projects, with a value to the community of about $114,500.
We heartfully thank our Spring 2023 sponsors: Marathon Petroleum Corp., City Apparel + Merch, Freudenberg-NOK Sealing Technologies, Whirlpool Corp., and LaRiche Chevrolet Cadillac.
Thank you to all the volunteers and team leads who made our Spring and Fall 2022 Days of Caring events possible: Marathon Petroleum Corp., Blanchard Valley Health System, Whirlpool Corp., First National Bank of Pandora, Freudenberg-NOK Sealing Technologies, City Apparel + Merch, Goodyear/Cooper Tire & Rubber Co., the McComb Future Farmers of America club, Fifth Third Bank, Aktion Club of Hancock County, Hearthside Food Solutions, the United Way of Hancock County Community Connections group, UIS Insurance & Investments, Hancock County Democrats, and Gilmore Jasion Mahler, LTD.
Fall Days of Caring: Sept. 18-20, 2023
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!
