Day of Caring - The Largest Single Day of Volunteerism in Northwest Florida

28 years ago, United Way of West Florida introduced Day of Caring, a community-wide initiative, as a way to connect volunteers and resources with local agencies and schools in need of support.

Since 1993, United Way of West Florida has coordinated 28,026 volunteers to complete 2,572 projects across Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. Each year, we're heartened to see hundreds - sometimes thousands! - of people work together to complete all kinds of projects that provide additional capacity to the organizations and institutions that keep our community strong.


In 2019 alone, over 1,000 community-minded people signed up to continue this beloved tradition, and helped complete more than 150 projects at 73 agencies and schools in our community! Together, Day of Caring volunteers donated nearly 5,000 hours of service valued at $126,336. Additional donations of materials and supplies added thousands more to the collective impact.

Thank you Day of Caring Sponsors
