Day of Caring

Our annual Day of Caring represents a fun and unique opportunity for companies and organizations to volunteer a full day at a United Way partner agency. Employees complete projects such as gardening, painting, cleaning and clerical work for agencies in need of volunteers while building comraderie and pride in their workplace. The 2017 Day of Caring date has not yet been set, but feel free to call our office at 573-443-4523 for more information. Check out pictures from 2016 DOC as well!
