Registration for the Day of Caring has started
Registration for the Bartholomew County United Way Day of Caring has started.
United Way Day of Caring is a one-day volunteer event that connects local businesses and community members with non-profit and residential volunteer projects in Bartholomew County. This year’s event is May 21.
A variety of volunteer projects will be available, including planting flowers, mulching, painting, organizing and sorting donations. Volunteers of all ages and skill levels are welcome to participate.
This year’s event will be different given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Organizers say the top priority is the health and safety of everyone involved.
Indoor projects will be limited to a maximum of six to eight volunteers per shift and will be determined by the size of the facility. Outdoor projects will be limited to a maximum of 20 volunteers per shift and are based on the size of the outdoor space. Adherence to CDC guidelines regarding mask use and social distancing will be used at each site.
Last year’s event was canceled due to COVID-19, but the days leading up to Day of Caring drew around 1,000 volunteers.
