United Way of Inner Wisconsin
Day of Caring is October 26, 2013
- We need groups of volunteers who are willing to give up a Saturday morning to provide needed services to people in our community! We are looking for:
- STUDENTS: Get a group of friends together to volunteer and have fun!
- FAMILIES: Parents - show your kids the value of volunteering... volunteer together as a family!
- CO-WORKERS: If your company is having a United Way campaign, this is a great way to incorporate volunteering!
- CHURCH GROUPS
- SERVICE ORGANIZATIONS
- Here is how you can get involved:
- Rake a yard or two for an elderly or disabled person. Come to the Grand Rapids Lion’s Club at 9:00am to receive your assignment. Groups of 4-5 are needed per yard. You must provide your own transportation, rake and gloves. Homeowners provide garbage bags. Volunteers are being encouraged to rake two yards to make a bigger impact in the community!
- Hold a food drive and then drop off your donations at South Wood Emergency Pantry Shelf (located in First Congregational Church) at 311 2nd St. S.
- Hold a clothing drive and drop off your donations at the Family Resource Center, Goodwill, Bethesda Thift Shop, or Career Closet during business hours!
- Call United Way of Inner Wisconsin’s Volunteer Center for a special project.
- Create your own project, and let us know the details.
- All volunteers receive a FREE LUNCH AND T-SHIRT!!!

Youth Advisory Committee
- Many of the special projects you will see are actually organized by our local youth! This committee also plans several aspects of the day, such as promotions, lunch, and sending volunteers out to their assignments. We thank this group of young adults for making Day of Caring a wonderful event!
