• United Way Day of Caring August 5 volunteer project registration now open

    Valparaiso, Indiana – United Way of Northwest Indiana is seeking volunteers to help local nonprofits during its annual Day of Caring event on Friday, August 5.
    As the largest single-day volunteer event across Northwest Indiana, Day of Caring brings together nonprofits, businesses, municipalities, civic groups and residents to help local nonprofits with facility improvements and client-support projects.
    “Day of Caring helps nonprofits serve more effectively,” said United Way Volunteer & Event Manager Anne-Marie Williams. “They have more projects than they can do, and having volunteers help clean up, fix, and make things aesthetically pleasing, helps them know we care.”
    There are more than 90 projects that need volunteers. Volunteers can choose from in-person, virtual and donation drive opportunities. Projects include painting, landscaping, building, cleaning, hosting social activities, collection drives and more.
    Volunteers receive a free Day of Caring T-shirt and can attend the free breakfast rally at Butterfield Pavilion at Fairgrounds Park in Valparaiso, presented by Strack and Van Til.
    Individuals, teams, novices and skilled professionals are encouraged to participate. For more information and to register, visit nwivolunteer.org.
