Since 1957, United Way of North Idaho has connected businesses and individuals with our nonprofit community to support and enhance nonprofit work that improves lives every day. In 2006 we started the Day of Caring—a one-day volunteer blitz that brings hundreds of locals working together with nonprofit agencies for the common good. This year we expect over 40 projects and 300 volunteers and rely on the support of a few sponsors to help ensure the day is energizing and engaging. Show the community your company cares about improving lives of our friends and neighbors in need.
