Day of Caring was established in 2006 in Garland County to promote the spirit of volunteerism, increase awareness of local human service organizations, and demonstrate how people working together for the common good can accomplish great things.
Each year, United Way of the Ouachitas brings together approximately 150 dedicated volunteers, community leaders, campaign coordinators, and elected officials who contribute to the outstanding efforts of the campaign, to highlight the results of our program investments.
We match local volunteers in the Ouachita Region to nonprofit organizations and schools to complete tasks such as gardening, general cleaning and repairs, landscaping, painting, and preparing meals. It is THE day to give your time and energy to the area's nonprofits. Participating in Day of Caring promotes workplace unity, builds morale, and shows leadership in the community.
Day of Caring is a fun filled day of hard work, excitement, and neighbors helping neighbors to build and maintain a stronger community.
