Day of Caring is the largest volunteer event in the Suncoast Region that connects nonprofit agencies with corporate and community volunteers.
In 2018, United Way HandsOn Suncoast organized more than 120 projects for 50 companies in our five-county service area. This benefited many of our partner agencies and affiliates by completing projects that they could never undertake on their own. Projects ranged from skill-based, social, and labor-intensive opportunities such as landscaping, cementing, playing games with seniors, reading with children, resume building workshops and more.
Projects for Day of Caring can be submitted starting August 5th through August 23rd. You can submit multiple projects at one or multiple locations or times. If you are unable to participate on October 11, you may select an alternate date in October.
How can my organization join?
Check out this agency guide with important information on how to register your organization, submit projects and view a list of important dates. Two important items to keep in mind:
- Projects can be submitted August 5 through August 23 and project adoption begins on September 4.
- If you are unable to participate on October 11, you may select an alternate date in October.
You can also download the agency manual to see step-by-step instructions on how to use the volunteer website.
Teams with 5 or more volunteers can sign up to adopt projects, so you can volunteer with your coworkers, friends and family members. A list of available projects that can be adopted between September 4-20 will be added at the end of August.
