Granite United Way kicks off its Day of Caring events every September.
Our Day of Caring events support local nonprofits across the regions who submitted ‘wish lists’ of projects to be completed – everything from painting and landscaping to office work and help at equine facilities. Granite United Way staff helped match up corporate teams and community volunteers to provide the 'sweat equity' needed.
“Any nonprofit organization is invited to submit a project for Day of Caring. Companies and community members volunteer to help out with projects that many nonprofits don’t have the people power to do,” said Val Guy, Area Director for Merrimack County and Day of Caring coordinator. “This event continues to grow with the support of our corporate partners and community volunteers.”
