Day of Caring

The annual Day of Caring involves more than 250 volunteers from 20 local companies and civic organizations engaged in working to make our community stronger and better for us all.

Day-Of-caring

What is the Day of Caring?
It is a one-day event organized by the United Way of Ulster County in which local businesses and organizations send teams of employees as volunteers to work 3-4 hours on various projects throughout the county for United Way Partner Agencies and other local non-profit agencies. Individual volunteers are welcome to participate.  Service projects usually take place in the morning and all volunteers and agency personnel are invited to a picnic at the Robert Post Pavilion, Town of Ulster park, on the banks of the Hudson from noon to 2 p.m. to celebrate the day!

Past projects have included gardening, painting and maintenance work, building picnic tables and sand boxes, landscaping, and helping out at a carnival for the disabled. Organizations and businesses are welcome to put together teams of volunteers of any number. Individual volunteers are always welcome.  Send your information to the United Way and we’ll assign a project to your team.
