Day of Caring

The United Way of Southwest Alabama (UWSWA) will hold its 28th Annual Day of Caring, one of the region’s largest single day of volunteerism on May 6, 2022

Organizations are invited to volunteer and leave a mark on someone’s heart. Day of Caring volunteers see first-hand how their support makes a difference as they paint and make repairs, plant trees and ready gardens for planting, sort food donations, and help our agencies complete projects they do not have the time or resources to do throughout the year. Volunteers are also given the opportunity to hear the stories of those whose lives have been impacted as a result of the agencies funded by UWSWA.

This year, participating teams are doing a combination of virtual and in-person projects.

UWSWA Outreach and Community Engagement Coordinator Katherine Pitman said, “Giving back to individuals and nonprofit agencies is rewarding and many times, transformational. This year’s 28th Day of Caring is no different. Bringing together the business community and direct service agencies leaves a positive mark on all citizens’ hearts”.

If you have any questions or want to schedule an Individual Day of Caring for your organization, contact Katherine Pitman at kpitman@uwswa.org or 251.431.0115.
