DAYS OF CARING 2023
DAYS OF CARING Each year, United Way mobilizes hundreds of people across Lane County to volunteer with local nonprofits. Organizations benefit from hard-working volunteers, and volunteers get to enjoy coming together to make a tangible impact in their community! Join us for this year’s Days of Caring, taking place September 21-23, 2023! Volunteer registration is open NOW! Click here to see available projects: https://www.volunteeruwlane.org/search?shareId=1c153fd24ea6466b8dfef7f11dd8ba2a Volunteer Registration: August 14- September 10 You can sign up for projects starting Monday, August 14, through end-of-day Sunday, September 10. Signing up for a group? Please note that all group member names must be submitted by September 1. If not, we will release any held volunteer slots back to the community so that other volunteers can sign up, and to prevent any last-minute no-shows. We, and our nonprofit partners, thank you! Choosing your project(s) Some projects may fill up fast, so be sure to sign up as soon as you're able. We encourage you and your team to pick a few favorites from the list so that if your number one project gets scooped, you still have other great options to choose from! There are many great projects (over 60!) to choose from, and our nonprofit partners look forward to having your support! Sign your Volunteer Release Form Every volunteer will need to fill out and sign a release form BEFORE participating in Days of Caring.
