DAY OF CARING

2024 FALL DAY OF CARING

Mark your calendars for Friday, September 27, as we celebrate the Annual Day of Caring!

Join us for a transformative day of community service and experience the heart of Kay County in action.  Don't miss out on this cherished tradition of giving back and making a difference together!

WHAT ARE DAYS OF CARING EVENTS?

Days of Caring are organized by the United Way of North Central Oklahoma in which volunteers participate in a wide range of community service projects for local nonprofits, schools, and other community organizations. These projects can include things like landscaping, painting, cleaning, administrative work, or other projects that the organizations need help with.

The event not only provides much-needed support to these organizations, but it also provides an opportunity for community members to learn more about the important work these organizations do.
 

Grab a shovel and spruce up landscaping for one of United Way of North Central Oklahoma's partner nonprofits, a school, or donate canned food items for the regional food drive.

WHY PARTICIPATE?

SHOW YOU CARE.
Days of Caring events are a much-loved volunteering tradition that expresses the philanthropic spirit of our community.

BUILD TEAMWORK.
After participating in Days of Caring, United Way of North Central Oklahoma becomes more than a logo, pledge card or campaign rally. It becomes the means by which an individual can assist many people through one gift.

For those who have yet to participate, Day of Caring is a time where community leaders get together to tackle much needed projects for area nonprofits. Most projects will happen on September 27th, but others can be executed before or after that date.

Any 501(c)3 organization can submit their projects from June 1, 2024 – August 9, 2024. Multiple projects can be submitted, but each project must be submitted separately. Organizations will be responsible for coordinating details with the team that selects their project and must provide all the supplies the team will need.

Teams of volunteers will be able to start selecting their projects in July through August 23rd. Team leads will need to submit all t-shirt sizes for their team members after selecting their project. Please keep in mind that teams cannot pre-select projects, as they will be available for selection on a first-come-first-serve basis.

On September 27th we will kick off Day of Caring with a celebration at 8am. To stay up to date about these events, follow our Facebook page (United Way of North Central Oklahoma) and check out the event pages we have set up.

Please take a moment to read and review these materials before submitting your project proposal.
