Day of Caring

Join us for Day of Caring in October 2023! This is your chance to take part in one of the largest single days of volunteerism in our community. #DOC30

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.

Day of Caring is October 20, 2023!

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.
