Day of Caring

Day of Caring is a one-day, community-wide event that connects nearly 700 volunteers with projects at nonprofits in the Shreveport-Bossier and Minden area. This event gives volunteers the opportunity to see their United Way contributions at work and learn more about the needs in their community. Volunteers tackle projects like painting, landscaping, clerical work, cleaning, and sorting food and donations. Annually, Day of Caring saves our nonprofit partners thousands in labor costs and allows volunteers to impact their community for the good.
