Day of Caring

Projects WANTED!  

More than 1,500 volunteers are ready to advance YOUR COMMUNITY PROJECT during the Quad Cities Fall Day of Caring – September 19, 2019.

At the United Way of the Quad Cities, we believe in partnering with community organizations like yours to build opportunities for all Quad Citizens to live their best possible life. And, we understand there is always more to be done.
This year’s Fall Day of Caring event will bring volunteers from the Quad Cites together to participate in one-time service projects at various organizations across the community. We hope you will take advantage of this great opportunity to engage volunteers in your organization and its work through a community project.


Currently we are recruiting volunteer projects for the Fall Day of Caring.  Starting August 19 to September 9 volunteers can review and register to participate in the projects on a first come, first served basis. (Must have volunteer names, emails and shirt size to register.)
Projects could include reading with students at elementary schools, spending time and playing games with kids, staffing a mobile food pantry, helping at a financial literacy fair for high school students, harvesting community gardens, beautification projects, and much more.
Questions? To learn more about how you and your organization can get involved, contact Amy Daniels or call her at 563.344.0344.
