Day of Caring



Northern Shenandoah Valley's Single-Largest Volunteer Effort


Join us on September 16, 2022



What is Day of Caring?

It's a single-day service event like no other! Day of Caring brings together teams of volunteers to help nonprofit organizations across Winchester, Frederick County, Clarke County, Shenandoah County and Page County. Our volunteers take to the streets, offices, playgrounds and schools of our community. They dedicate their day to painting, landscaping, cleaning and more. All to prove the amazing difference one day can make when we work together. Spend one day volunteering with us at local nonprofits to complete more than 100 projects. Let’s Live United!

United Way facilitates Day of Caring projects that are designed to serve our community's most vulnerable residents including the elderly, disabled, low-income, and military veterans at no cost to them. Many nonprofit organizations are also supported through this event which allows them to continue focusing on serving the needs of the Northern Shenandoah Valley. 

Day of Caring projects involve a variety of services and can include minor home safety repairs, painting, cleaning, tidying, landscaping, gardening, and more!
