Community Care Day 2020

Logan County’s signature corporate volunteer event—COMMUNITY CARE DAY—is back for a fifth year in 2020!  Join United Way on Friday August 28 (rescheduled from Friday May 15), as hundreds of volunteers from area workplaces, churches, and civic organizations will work on meaningful group projects and make a difference in our community.  Hands-on opportunities for volunteers of all skill levels and interests are being organized in advance throughout Logan County for teams to select for completion.  Whether you like to bake or build, plant or paint, get clean or get dirty, there will be a job for you on Community Care Day.  Projects will take place at social service agencies and area parks.  Volunteers will share the excitement, camaraderie, team-building, and good feelings that come with working together.  Service projects are proven to be strong team-building exercises that build camaraderie and help our community at the same time!   
 

 


 

BEFORE FRIDAY AUGUST 14...
  1. Complete the Volunteer Registration Form OR print one and send it back in.
  2. United Way will reach out to your Team Contact to begin coordinating one or more projects for you to complete on Friday August 28.
  3. By late-August, you will be able to select from a list of available projects one or more that matches your interest, skill set, and availability.  
  4. By Wednesday August 19, you should know what, where, and with whom you will be working and what you may need to bring with you on August 28.  Some projects may require volunteers to bring their own tools, such as ladders, hedge trimmers, hammers, gloves, etc.  
 
ON FRIDAY AUGUST 28...
  • 8:00 a.m. - Report to the Bellefontaine Regional Airport (3700 St. Rt. 47 W) to check-in.  Complimentary breakfast will be provided.  Each volunteer will receive a T-shirt to wear while working that day.  
  • 9:00 a.m. -  Volunteers disperse throughout the county in groups of at least two, sometimes as large as 20, to complete the service projects.  Projects have been coordinated in advance.  Depending upon your selection, plan for projects to take between two to six hours to complete.

 


 

COULD YOUR AGENCY OR ANY OF THOSE YOU SERVE, USE THE HELP OF SOME VOLUNTEER MANPOWER?
 
We would like to assign volunteers to a task that would take between 3-6 hours to complete.  We can send groups ranging from two to 20 volunteers.  This is your chance to be creative and think big about an idea your organization hasn’t had time, manpower, or resources to complete.  Possibilities include:
  • Spring cleaning
  • Painting
  • Moving
  • Yard work / landscaping
  • Sorting
  • “Handyman” and small construction projects
  • “Assembly-Line” projects
  • Hang posters / literature distribution
  • Hands-on opportunities with your clients
