Day of Caring

Day of Caring

United Way of Cullman County, in collaboration with its community partners, will host a Day of Caring September 11.  The event will provide community members with a meaningful and collective volunteer opportunity. Day of Caring gives our community the opportunity to unite and give back.  During Day of Caring, volunteers are able to accomplish projects for our community partners that allow them to focus on their mission.  Each year, community volunteers and businesses participate by donating time, volunteers and resources to assist with hands-on projects such as cleaning, landscaping and providing lunch for program participants. Day of Caring promotes the value of volunteerism and demonstrates that neighbors helping neighbors can create a positive change in the lives of children, families and seniors. Local businesses and organizations take part by coordinating teams of employees to spend a day giving back to area non-profit agencies. The event typiclly held on National Day of Service which was launched in 2002 was established by the National Day of Service which asks people to do at least one good deed on 9/11, in honor of those who died that day. Numerous community service organizations and charities offer opportunities for people to give back, paying tribute to the lives lost on Sept. 11, 2001. Day of Caring traditionally kicks off with a breakfast at 7:30 am, at the Train Depot.
