United Way of Southwestern Indiana announces a change to the 2020 Day of Caring annual community volunteer event. Due to concerns regarding the spread of coronavirus, United Way will host an online “Day of Sharing” in place of the breakfast Kickoff and in-person volunteer blitz.
The Day of Sharing will take place virtually on Friday, September 18th and is a celebration of the impact the past 26 years of Day of Caring has had on local nonprofits, families and our community. To participate, all previous volunteers, Day of Caring host organizations, sponsors, and partner companies are encouraged to share pictures, videos, fond memories, favorite Kickoff moments, and inspirational stories from past Days of Caring on various social media platforms. The posts should tag the host organization, United Way and include the hashtags #DayofSharing and #LiveUnited.
Prizes will be awarded throughout the day for a variety of contests such as: oldest Day of Caring picture, oldest Day of Caring shirt, largest collection of previous Day of Caring shirts, most inspiring Day of Caring story and others. Be sure to follow United Way on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn to stay abreast of the day’s activities.
The Day of Sharing will also include a Virtual Kickoff for United Way’s annual campaign, which runs through the end of the year. The effects of the pandemic have devastated many families throughout our community. This year’s theme, “Today determines tomorrow. Now, more than ever, Live United,” is a call to help our neighbors rebuild a brighter tomorrow.
