Day of Caring

UPDATE: United Way of Thurston County's Day of Caring is typically in September. Due to protective measures surrounding the COVID-19 Crisis, we do not know if we will hold Day of Caring in 2020. We will make the decision as new protective measures are updated. Please continue to check back here for updated information. Thank you.


Thank you for rolling up your sleeves and lending a hand at Day of Caring 2019. Along with more than 550 volunteers, you helped complete 28 projects, putting over $75,000 worth of time into our community. Some of you were pulling blackberries and scotch broom in our parks; others were painting houses and landscaping for our Thurston County neighbors. No matter the work, know that you made a real, measurable difference in our community and we are incredibly grateful.
We value your feedback as we set our sights on Day of Caring 2020. Please take a moment to fill out this short survey about your Day of Caring experience: Each respondent will be entered into a drawing to win one of many prizes.
We hope to see you at our next Day of Caring on September 25, 2020, but until then, there are many ways to stay connected and learn more about how you can support United Way of Thurston County. Did you know you can channel your philanthropy into a workplace giving campaign? Contact Mike Leonard or Marjorie Jackson for more information. Or, reach out to Randi Nandyal to learn about small business and individual giving, or to get involved with Women United. Keep an eye out for upcoming events and subscribe to our newsletter by clicking here.
We encourage you to stay involved in United Way throughout the coming year and help fight for the health, education and financial stability of every person in our community.
We have big work to do, and it will take every one of us to get it done. 
That's what it means to Live United. 
Thank you.
