Thank you, Days of Caring 2021 Volunteers! 


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. In 2020, we enjoyed expanding DAYS of Caring and engaging with volunteers over 3 days to make an even greater impact.

Continuing the success of that expansion, DAYS of Caring 2021 took place on September 16th, 17th, and 18th. More than 20 nonprofits across Cottage Grove, Eugene, Florence, Pleasant Hill, and Springfield hosted over 300 volunteers for projects, both virtually and in-person. Together, those volunteers provided 1,085 hours of service across the three days.

THANK YOU to all of the volunteers, agencies, and staff who made Days of Caring a success. Your service to the Lane County community is greatly appreciated!
