What is Day of Caring?
Day of Caring is an annual day of service sponsored by the United Way of Greater Portland. The day kicks-off with a short program in Portland’s Deering Oaks Park. Following the festivities, more than 1,000 volunteers from local businesses and schools will spend the day working at 75+ projects including painting, trail clearing, gardening and organizing. Greater Portland literally sparkles at the end of the day!
Why Get Involved?
In addition to helping to improve our community, volunteering can be a great team building opportunity for staff. You’ll have an opportunity to learn about community needs and about the work of a specific agency or school.
