Day of Caring

"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much."
- Helen Keller

Each year, Oshkosh Area United Way hosts Day of Caring, one of the largest organized volunteer events in the area. Day of Caring is a community-wide service day with hundreds of volunteers working on projects hosted by local organizations throughout Oshkosh. Participating in Day of Caring is a great way for anyone of any age to lend a helping hand to amazing organizations that are strengthening the community we live and work in.
On Wednesday, May 20, 2020, we ask residents, students, families and employees to consider spending a half-day volunteering at our Day of Caring event to give back to the organizations that are doing so much to better the lives of our friends and neighbors.
A few examples of DOC volunteer projects from past years include:
  • Basic gardening/landscaping
  • Installing smoke detectors
  • Packing recipe bags
  • Writing letters of encouragement
  • Sorting socks and underwear for B2SF
  • Moving furniture
  • Assembling centerpieces
  • Various skilled-based tasks (assisting with social media strategy, reviewing HR handbooks, etc.)
One of the greatest gifts you can give is your time - please consider registering yourself or a group of your friends/co-workers to volunteer at Day of Caring!
All volunteers MUST register via the button below or link HERE prior to May 8. Following the deadline, we will email all registrants additional information about where you'll be volunteering and what you'll be doing on Day of Caring!

We'll kick off the morning with a delicious free breakfast buffet at La Sure's Banquet Hall and a few opening remarks from community leaders before volunteers head out to their assigned project sites. All volunteers will receive a free United Way T-Shirt.
