Days of Caring allows our community partner agencies the opportunity to have out of the ordinary projects completed that otherwise would not be done, allowing additional program dollars toward direct services for their clients. Such projects may include landscaping, painting, cleaning and more. Last year’s hours alone equated to over $100,000 saved by the non-profit agencies in our community.
Last year’s results are a true testament of living united. Help us improve our results over last year by posting a project, or by picking a project to complete!
Search the link "Projects" on the upper left side of this page to find a Day of Caring project for your company or group. For more information on projects, please contact Laura Trudell at 508.222.2337, ext. 100.
Agencies that wish to participate to have projects completed by local volunteers can simply click on the Days of Caring Application, complete it, and send it to Laura Trudell.
Day of Action - June 21, 2016
This year, in addition to providing our year-round Days of Caring volunteer opportunities, UWGAT hosted one major project, a Day of Action, on Tuesday, June 21, 2016.
During Day of Action 2016, UWGAT held a Wellness Drive. This drive was to collect essential toiletries and other small items to help individuals in our area. The Wellness Drive continued throughout the month of June. Local businesses such as Associates for Human Services, DePuy-Bridgewater, Mastery Martial Arts, Sensata Technologies, Newman YMCA, Robbins Children’s Programs, and many more individuals and businesses supported UWGAT by holding collection bins and gathering donations for the Wellness Drive.
UWGAT also had 4 volunteers help sort through the donations. Various personal care items including diapers, shampoo, conditioner, first aid items, sunscreen were organized, divided and delivered to our local partner agencies. These donations have been used to help individuals in our area.
Thank you to the countless volunteers for your support!
