Day of Caring

Annual Event Engages Hundreds of Volunteers in Greater Nashua

You can LIVE UNITED by volunteering for United Way of Greater Nashua’s 25th Annual Day of Caring on Wednesday, September 14, 2016. For one day each September, about 300 volunteers in Greater Nashua and the Souhegan Valley take the day off from work to paint and clean up facilities, read to children, deliver meals to home-bound elderly, and perform a variety of other services that area non-profit organizations often cannot complete due to lack of resources.

IMG_0059Dozens of businesses support Day of Caring in Greater Nashua by giving some of their employees the day off to volunteer.  A representative at each company coordinates employee participation in Day of Caring.  We also welcome individual volunteers from the community.

Non-profit organizations, please visit our online project submission page.

All volunteers and company representatives should attend the Tailgate Kick-off Breakfast, which promises to be a fun way to start your day! Get your Day of Caring T-shirt, reusable water bottle, NFL schedule, and a fresh breakfast.

After the kick-off, volunteers should go directly to their assigned job sites.
