Day of Caring returns for 2021!
The Day of Caring is an annual day of action that connects teams of corporate volunteers with nonprofits from across the Blackhawk Region (Rock County and northern Winnebago County). Volunteer teams roll up their sleeves and provide much-needed manpower to complete half or full day projects they’re assigned to at local agencies.
Date: Wednesday, Sept. 22, 2021
Financial Support for Day of Caring Projects
Already a generous sponsor of Day of Caring, Thrivent Members may also be able to provide a $250 “Community Impact Card” of financial support for potential Day of Caring projects (for materials, supplies, food, etc). We recommend inquiring with your boards, volunteers, and e-newsletter recipients to see if your stakeholders are Thrivent Financial Members. If so, perhaps they would be willing to apply for one of their $250 Thrivent Action Team grants to support your Day of Caring project(s). Interested in learning more, email your Thrivent Financial Advisor or go to: Thrivent.com/actionteams.

Corporate Partners / Day of Caring Volunteers
Thanks for your interest in this annual day of action and volunteerism! UWBR will do our best to accommodate hundreds of volunteers, but reserve the opportunity to right-size the event based on the project needs of participant agencies. This includes limiting volunteer teams ONLY to corporate partners that facilitate United Way campaigns. Please be reminded, Team Leads are responsible for helping to disseminate Day of Caring information to their Team members.
Participation in Day of Caring is a benefit afforded to corporate partners that facilitate United Way campaigns. If you have any questions or need more information, please see the FAQ section below.
