2017 Day of Caring

We are excited to announce that the 2017 Heart of Missouri United Way Day of Caring will be Monday, September 11, 2017, along with our Community Campaign Kickoff and National Day of Service. Please join us for a Kick-Off Celebration at 8:00am at The Columns Club at MU's Faurot Field.

Through Day of Caring please help us to:

  1. Bring together donors, employee and corporate donors, community stakeholders, agency service providers, clients, etc. on a day specifically dedicated to National Day of Service, a movement created to provide service to others in observance to those brave men, women and children who helped, were lost, were injured and some still suffering from the events of September 11, 2001.
  2. To provide a day of volunteer service coordinated with local service providers to meet the needs of community nonprofit agencies and their clients.
  3. Promote a communitywide culture of volunteerism through coordinating project experiences that are meaningful, impactful and rewarding for both agencies and volunteers.
  4. Through the Adopt-An-Agency Supplies Drive, Companies and Groups will be able to collect the most needed items identified by non-profit partner agencies and then deliver them to the agency they've adopted. Sometimes agencies need "things" just as much or more than they need elbow grease. If you can't get a group of volunteers together or if your company/group wants to do a little more, this is a great way to give back to the community, local non-profits and the clients they serve.

If you have any questions, please contact Courtney Daviess, Assistant Director for Community Impact, at cdaviess@uwheartmo.org.

We can't wait to join together to GET INVOLVED AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE on September 11th for the 2017 Heart of Missouri United Way Day of Caring!
