United Way of Kootenai County Day of Caring @ Coeur d'Alene Area
Sep 24 all-day

The United Way, and its Community Partners, will participate in the 8th Annual Community Day of Caring on Thursday, September 24, 2015. Day of Caring begins with the United Way of Kootenai County Campaign Kickoff, a spirited rally the night before (Sept 23rd), where everyone comes together to celebrate volunteerism and the “LIVE UNITED” spirit in our community. Local businesses will compete for the coveted Food Drive “Tin Can” trophy which will be awarded based on the most pounds of food collected. This food drive is essential to assist the food banks in serving the public through to the giving season.

Supporting the United Way of Kootenai County is the most powerful investment you can make in our community. No other single organization has the scope, expertise, and influences to bring together human services agencies, government, businesses, private foundations, and dedicated volunteers around a common vision of creating maximum impact and achieving long-lasting results. The funds collected during the annual giving campaign will result in supporting more than two dozen non-profit agencies through grants totaling over $200,000.

Then, Get ready for action! Each year over 300 business leaders and community members roll up their sleeves and grab their tools to spend the day giving back to our community through the United Way of Kootenai County’s Day of Caring. There are a lot of projects lined up and an army of able people to lend a helping hand to our local nonprofits. Last year, the exciting Day of Caring “Call to Action” saved non-profit agencies more than $30,000 in labor. The projects will be completed at over 40 locations in Kootenai County between the hours of 9:00 am and 5:00 pm.

Help strengthen our local non-profits and the community. Plan to join in… role up your sleeves and volunteer!

If you are a nonprofit agency and have a volunteer project that needs to be completed this year, please use the following link to the Project Submission Form. The Campaign Kickoff event on September 23rd requires an RSVP to Sarah@KootenaiUnitedWay.org by September 12, deadline for volunteer team registration is September 10.

If you are a volunteer/company wishing to participate, please fill out the Participation Form.
