We are reimagining this year’s Day of Caring into DAYS of Caring from September 24-26, 2020. We will be searching for more projects that can be done primarily outside/in well-spaced locations in smaller groups, to make sure we are all staying safe. Nonprofit agencies can register projects starting in mid-July, and volunteers can start signing up in mid-August. To make sure you don't miss out on any Day of Caring updates, please email us at dayofcaring@unitedwaylane.org. And to hear about other volunteer opportunities and donation drives (including new ones coming this summer!), please sign up for our eNews at the bottom of this page.


Day of Caring is an annual day of volunteering facilitated by United Way of Lane County since 1993. Each year, United Way of Lane County works to coordinate partners across the nonprofit, public, and private sectors for one incredible day of giving back to the community through volunteerism. The event takes place each September and helps to promote the importance of a connected community. 


Thank you to the 826 volunteers who showed up, gave back, and got your hands dirty during this year's Day of Caring! 

 Look at the positive impact made throughout our community in one day.  

Congrats, Pearl Buck Center and Hershner Hunter!
Our annual sponsors voted for their favorite photo, and this one of Hershner Hunter volunteers bikin' around Pearl Buck Center took the cake! Thank you to everyone who posted photos using the #LaneCountyCares-we loved following along and sharing out what you were up to! We'll be awarding our winners a donut party for their winning photo. 

We've compiled many of the other photos into a Facebook album. Enjoy!
