The largest single-day community service event in Livingston County is set for Wednesday, August 10, 2022.
Volunteer and work site registrations for the Livingston County United Way’s 20th Annual Day of Caring are now open and ready for people to sign up. Griffith Realty will serve as the Major Sponsor for the 2022 Day of Caring, which the United Way has tagged as; One day. One Community. Amazing Results.
In 2021, 563 volunteers covered 741 shifts, accomplishing a total of 67 projects, which included assisting senior citizens with home related repairs and improvements, building wheelchair ramps, helping support project referrals from our local agencies and schools, collecting school supplies and packing 932 school backpacks, as well as organizing local food and personal care drives.
The Livingston County United Way is now collecting worksite proposals from local residents, seniors, schools, disabled residents and non-profit agencies. The work is often minor household repair projects, cleaning and yardwork that the homeowner is not able to do on their own. Anyone can recommend a worksite and community members are encouraged to apply for a neighbor or friend who needs extra help. Deadline for worksite projects is June 21. All proposed worksites are reviewed for approval by the Livingston County United Way Day of Caring Committee.
Volunteers are invited to register individually or as a group. They can designate preferences for location, type of project, special skills and specific shift times (9:00 a.m. – noon or 1:00-4:00 p.m. or a full day commitment).
Deadline for volunteer registration is June 21.

Companies, clubs and organizations are invited and encouraged to participate together.
“What better way to showcase an organization’s volunteer spirit while making a difference, improving employee morale and enthusiasm through team building and connecting individuals to their community and coworkers,” stated a press release issued Monday.
Those who are unable to participate, but still want to help, are asked to consider a company sponsorship, personal donation or hosting a food drive or personal care drive in the weeks before the event.
All sponsorships and donations will be used to buy supplies needed for Day of Caring worksite projects.
