More About Union County United Way Day of Caring

What is it? • Where is it? • How can we participate?

•Day of Caring is an annual community-wide service project organized by United Way.

•Volunteer teams from local businesses, civic clubs, churches and the community at large are recruited to complete projects. Teams must pre-register by July 13th to be matched with a project. Individuals are welcome too! Call 704.283.1537 to request a registration form, available June 11th.

•Generally, sites cannot accommodate more than 5-8 people, so groups greater than that may be divided into several teams, depending on available projects.

•A variety of projects are identified throughout the county. The majority of project sites are at homes of the elderly, but sites also include area nonprofit organizations, preschools, etc.

•Typical tasks include cutting grass, weeding flowerbeds, pruning shrubs, trash pickup, window washing, cleaning gutters, and painting.

•Day of Caring volunteers cannot complete any work inside a home and generally are not skilled laborers.

•As a rule, homeowners who are receiving the volunteer service provide any supplies or materials that might be needed. However, teams may be asked to bring yard tools, etc.

•Teams will gather at 7:30AM at Wingate University Irwin Belk Stadium for a complimentary continental breakfast and a short program. Projects are generally completed by noon.

•Team captains are responsible for contacting and visiting the assigned project site and surveying the jobs requested. This will allow you to be familiar with the site and confirm with the site contact person what tools and materials will be needed. This should be done more than a week in advance so that there are no last minute problems.

•Upon visiting the project site, the team captain will determine if there are problems in completing any of the jobs requested. Teams are not responsible for providing any materials or completing any work that is not on the site sheet. If, however, the team chooses to supply materials or complete extra work, it is strictly their decision.

•Please feel free to bring your company sign or make one for your team. This is a great way to assemble your team at the kickoff celebration and show your team spirit at the project site!

•In an effort to provide a safe and comfortable environment for all, regardless of the state enacted concealed handgun law, firearms are prohibited at all project sites by anyone other than law enforcement. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
