Community Care Day 2022

Care Day Logo

Logan County’s signature corporate volunteer event—COMMUNITY CARE DAY—is back for a 7th year in 2022!  Join United Way on Friday August 26, 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!

Agency Project Requests

In DeGraffImagine if YOUR NON-PROFIT, COMMUNITY PARK, OR ORGANIZATION had a workforce of up to a dozen volunteers (or more) at your disposal for an entire day.  What type of work could they do to advance your mission or serve your population?  What type of improvement project could you have them do at your site?  What’s been on your wishlist that you haven’t been able to accomplish because of time or manpower constraints?  This is your chance to be creative and think big!  And with time to plan, there’s no reason to think ANY project is outside the realm of possibility.  How about things like:

  • “Handyman” and small construction projects
  • “Assembly-Line” projects
  • Hang posters / literature distribution
  • Hands-on opportunities with your clients, like meal distribution
  • Deep cleaning
  • Painting
  • Yard work / landscaping
  • Sorting / Moving
  • Building a website or social media presence

You could even submit more than one project, and have more than one volunteer group!
