United Way of Adams County

Annual Day of Caring - Sponsored by PNC

Saturday, September 13, 2014

Day of Caring is a day when teams of volunteers from companies, organizations, schools and the community LIVE UNITED by working on service projects to benefit United Way funded agencies and community partners.

2014 Day of Caring begins at 7:30 a.m. at the Gettysburg REC Park with a rally and continental breakfast. All Day of Caring volunteers receive a LIVE UNITED t-shirt. At 8:30 a.m., volunteer teams will set off for a fun-filled, family-friendly, action-packed morning at United Way funded agencies and community partners, 9:00 a.m. - Noon.

Why should you participate?
LEARN more about community needs, services provided by United Way funded agencies and community partners, and how you can help by volunteering.
ENHANCE the impact of your financial contributions.
BUILD teamwork and stronger bonds between employees and company.

How do you participate?
RECRUIT a team (average size 4 - 10 people) with your co-workers and/or their family members.
ASSIGN a Company Team Coordinator.

Day of Caring projects will take place at United Way funded agencies and community partners throughout the Adams - Hanover area. Projects will begin at 9:00 a.m. and be completed by Noon. Projects are primarily family-friendly and range from hosting activities for agency clients, cleaning, painting, landscaping, etc. Most agencies are able to provide supplies for the project, but some agencies have requested help with project supplies. Thanks to generous donations from PNC, there is funding available for project supplies. Teams will be assigned to projects based on date of response, team size and skill level.

Upon project assignment, the Company Team Coordinator will receive detailed information about working on your project and a Project Guide which will provide step-by-step instructions to insure a successful project. By planning and working closely with the Agency Volunteer Coordinator and by following the Project Guidelines, you can ensure that your team will have a rewarding and meaningful experience and learn how a t-shirt can change Adams County.

We hope you will take advantage of this unique volunteer opportunity. If you have any questions, please contact Vickie Corbett at (717) 334-5809 or email
