Registration is now open for both volunteer teams and agency projects. The two main objectives of Day of Caring are to provide non-profit human service agencies with an opportunity to complete projects that they otherwise could not afford to do, and to involve volunteers in first-hand experience with area charities.
The United Way is currently seeking projects from non-profit human service agencies. Any incorporated non-profit or government entity, school or neighborhood association is encouraged to submit projects. Agencies do not have to be a United Way partner program to benefit from Day of Caring – anyone is welcome to participate. Teams of caring individuals in Mifflin and Juniata counties who want make a difference in their local community are also needed. Teams are formed from individuals at local businesses, associations, service groups, and even other non-profits. Teams can be any size and any skill level. Day of Caring is a free event for volunteer participants, which is made possible by the generosity of sponsors. Volunteers are only asked to donate their time to help build a stronger community for all of us.
The registration deadline for both non-profit agencies and teams is August 12, 2016. For more information and to register a project or a team, visit them by clicking here .
The United Way of Mifflin-Juniata reserves the right to refuse any agencies whose volunteer programs’ missions and purposes it finds contrary to the spirit of volunteerism.
