The Livingston County United Way’s 14th Annual Day of Caring
, the largest single-day volunteerism event in Livingston County, is set for Wednesday, August 19.
Volunteers are currently being sought, with volunteer registrations needed by July 24.
The high-impact event has grown over the years to over 1,400 volunteer shifts at over 100 worksites. Volunteers are needed for morning, afternoon or all-day shifts to do yardwork for local seniors, wash windows, minor household repairs, painting, harvesting and weeding at community gardens, and more. In addition, volunteers are needed for food drives at area Walmart stores on Saturday, August 15.
Local businesses, school sports teams and clubs, service organizations, and churches are encouraged to utilize the Day of Caring for a team-building experience, or individuals can sign up to be assigned to a worksite as well. The Day of Caring Challenge Grant from Citizens Insurance invites local public high school teams and clubs to join in the event and be possibly rewarded for their community spirit and participation.

or call 810-494-3000. You can specify morning (8:30 – noon), afternoon (1:00 – 4:30), or the entire day, and select the type of work you are willing to do. A volunteer picnic lunch will be held at Howell City Park for all volunteers involved in the day. Volunteers registered by July 24 will receive a commemorative Day of Caring t-shirt and refreshment bag; t-shirts may not be available after that date.
