Hundreds Join United Way Day of Caring Throughout Western Massachusetts This Friday

Tomorrow will mark United Way of Pioneer Valley’s 23rd annual Day of Caring, as over seven hundred volunteers roll up their sleeves and render volunteer service to dozens of local non-profit agencies.

There are thirty-nine non-profit agencies who are participating in Day of Caring, and over seventy unique projects that will be taking place on this single day. The United Way of Pioneer Valley Day of Caring is the largest volunteer day of service in Western Massachusetts, and brings together local businesses and non-profit agencies to accomplish meaningful tasks in the community.

United Way Day of Caring is an excellent team building opportunity for employees, and a perfect opportunity for a non-profit agency to accomplish tasks and projects that they otherwise would not have the capacity to complete. We invite you to the following agencies to cover some of the great projects taking place during the 2017 Day of Caring.
