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.

Day of Caring Goals:

  1. Meet Heart of Missouri United Way's mission to fight to improve lives in our community.
  2. Support our vision of our community winning by Living United through: responding to changing community needs. By forging strategic partnerships and fostering effective solutions to tackle local issues. By harnessing the best resources and inspiring others to join the fight in defeating barriers to basic needs, health, education and financial stability.
  3. Engage community donors, employee and corporate donors, community stakeholders, agency service providers, clients, etc. on a day specifically dedicated to a national movement in providing 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.
  4. To provide a day of volunteer service coordinated with local service providers to meet the needs of community nonprofit agencies and their clients.
  5. Promote a communitywide culture of volunteerism through coordinating project experiences that are meaningful, impactful and rewarding for both agencies and volunteers.

We anticipate that roughly 15 United Way partner agencies will be participating. These agencies will be submitting projects to choose from. Projects can range anywhere from data entry, light office cleaning, indoor painting, etc., to landscape projects, gutter cleaning, outdoor painting, donation drives, etc.

If you have any questions, please contact Courtney Daviess, assistant director of Community Impact, at cdaviess@uwheartmo.org.
