Day of Caring

The Day of Caring event brings volunteers from the Quad Cities together to participate in one-time, hands-on service projects at various organizations across the community. We encourage teams of all sizes – 1 to 200+ – to join us for the day. Mark your calendar now to take advantage of this great opportunity to engage volunteers in your organization and its work through a community project.



While this year’s fall Day of Caring will not take place in its traditional form due to COVID-19 safety regulations and precautions, your participation in the reimagined event is more important than ever!
The fall Day of Caring will focus on rebuilding a stronger, more equitable community through United for Equity and the Quad Cities 21-Day Equity Challenge!
Advance registration is required by Sept. 15: Join the United Way, our partners in the community and hundreds of Quad Citizens just like you in changing habits to tackle racial inequality and create lasting change.
Starting on the Day of Caring, you’ll receive daily emails for three weeks with suggested readings, podcasts, videos, observations and ways to form and deepen community connections and understanding. Each action takes about 10-15 minutes, and can be done as a group, in pairs or on your own.
Listen, learn, reflect and act to help us live our lives Stronger Together.
