Day of Caring

Thank you to everyone who volunteered for Day of Caring on September 20!

On Thursday, September 20, Greater Ottawa County United Way hosted its 17th annual Day of Caring in Ottawa County. More than 1,200 volunteers teamed up to help local nonprofit organizations with 45 projects around the county throughout the day. Vice President of Volunteer Engagement Shannon LaHaie said, “Day of Caring is a great way to connect local businesses to nonprofit organizations. The help they are receiving amounts to $211,900 in labor support for our nonprofit community. We are so grateful for our generous community and the impact their volunteer efforts have throughout Ottawa County.”

Your business, organization or group is invited to get out into the community to volunteer at a local nonprofit organization for a half day or full day of service. Plus, thanks to some generous sponsors and donors, we are able to offer a free lunch at Camp Geneva for all of our volunteers!
