Project Registration Now Open!

Register Your Volunteer Project by August 21

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 places each September and helps to promote the importance of a connected community. This year we have reimagined Day of Caring into DAYS of Caring from September 24-26, 2020 to make an even greater impact.

This year we HIGHLY encourage virtual/remote volunteer projects

  • Virtual ideas: online chats or calls with homebound seniors, research, designing newsletters, having a focus group to give you feedback, etc.
  • Remote/DIY Project ideas include: having volunteers either come and get the supplies needed from you to complete the project or volunteers/companies might use some of their own resources to purchase supplies and then get the completed project to you – i.e. assembling kits, writing thank you notes, etc.   

Onsite projects should be the last option and only if you are able to follow safety protocols.  Please keep your numbers small and keep projects outside if at all possible (especially since the state guidelines are becoming more restricted with the increase in COVID cases). See our agency guide for more details.

Congrats to Pearl Buck Center and Hershner Hunter for being our 2019 Photo Contest winners!
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!
