History of: Day of Caring
In 1996, Day of Caring was established to offer projects to United Way partner agencies and other non-profits in Jackson County. It expands agency funding and offers repairs, construction, and client services with donations and time. Each year more than 200 volunteers come together to Live United during a fun and work-filled day.
On May 13th, 2014, JCUW's 18th Annual Day of Caring reached a record-breaking day of volunteerism with over 475 volunteers serving at 74 project sites. In 2015, Day of Caring continued to break records.
In May 2016, JCUW celebrated its 20th Annual Day of Caring with over 1,090 volunteers and over 150 project sites. There was a 75% increase for the day due to the strong support of Cummins.
