Day of Caring


Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the 2018 United Way of Cass-Clay Day of Caring!

Each fall, United Way of Cass-Clay coordinates the annual Day of Caring Volunteer Event to connect senior citizens in need with caring volunteers to help with projects in and around their homes. This year, the 2018 United Way of Cass-Clay Day of Caring Volunteer Event will be held on Thursday, October 11, 2018. Last year in 2017, 1,700 local volunteers helped 470 senior citizens in their homes across our Cass-Clay community. The volunteers helped with various projects such as yardwork, raking, trimming, lawn care, light cleaning projects and other projects in and around the homes of senior citizens.

This year we will celebrate the 26th Annual United Way of Cass-Clay Day of Caring Volunteer Event. We invite you to Be a Force for Good and join hundreds of local volunteers to help senior citizens!
