Day of Caring

Day of Caring shows the amazing difference one day can make when you volunteer.

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


This year's Day of Caring is Wednesday, September 16, 2020 
for Winchester City, Frederick, Clarke, Shenandoah and Page Counties
