Day of Caring

Group of volunteers

Thank You!

Hundreds of volunteers rolled up their sleeves and completed service projects at nonprofit agencies and schools across Escambia and Santa Rosa counties during United Way of West Florida’s Day of Caring on February 25. 

The final numbers are in. Here is the impact Day of Caring made on our community.


The number of volunteers spent the day cleaning, painting, building, and more.

Day of Caring is Back in October!

The next Day of Caring is only a few months away. It will return to its traditional fall date on October 7, 2022. More information about signing up is coming soon.

About 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.
