Day of Caring

Group of volunteers

Join us for Day of Caring on October 7, 2022! This is your chance to take part in one of the largest single days of volunteerism in our community. #DOC29

Day of Caring is a community-wide initiative that connects volunteers and resources with local agencies and schools in need of support. We are recruiting volunteer teams looking to work and nonprofit agencies and schools that need projects done across Escambia and Santa Rosa counties.

Get Connected

United Way of West Florida uses Get Connected, a volunteer platform, which houses volunteer opportunities and all Day of Caring projects.  Agencies will enter their Day of Caring project into the Get Connected system.  Volunteer Team Leaders create a personal Get Connected profile which will allow them to select Day of Caring projects. 

Below are guides to assist:


  • Use Day of Caring Agency Project Checklist as a guide when entering your Day of Caring project. 


  • Use Day of Caring Volunteer Checklist as a guide to creating a profile and/or connecting to a project.

If you need help with Get Connected or have general questions, please consider joining a virtual Learning Lab-
