September 14, 2022 7:00 am Sandy O’Haver Day of Caring

The number one way to help people feel more connected to their community is through volunteering.  Companies around the Ohio Valley will help us kick off the United Way campaign with the largest volunteer day in the Ohio Valley – SANDY O’HAVER DAY OF CARING.  This year we celebrate our 31st annual DAY OF CARING on Wednesday, September 14, 2022.  This event makes a lasting impact on so many of our neighbors in the Upper Ohio Valley through community service.

How does DAY OF CARING work?  As a community partner, we ask that companies give their employees a paid day out of the office to volunteer at a local non-profit agency.  Day of Caring proves to be a great team building day as well as an eye-opening and gratifying experience for volunteers.  Teams will be assigned to a specific agency whose staff will give direction and supervision on tasks needed.   

Annually, this event brings together 300 volunteers.

This year, EQT is generously sponsoring all volunteer shirts and a light breakfast in the morning. EQT logo

We will proudly and publicly recognize participating companies and volunteers.  We welcome volunteers to take pictures and share them with us and on social media.  Volunteers receive a SANDY O’HAVER DAY OF CARING t-shirt provided by EQT and lunch provided by the host agency.

This is a rewarding opportunity to help us celebrate the good work being done by agencies across our communities and for helping us kick off the United Way of the Upper Ohio Valley’s annual campaign.

If you are a non-profit needing some help, or a company that would like to connect to your community through volunteering, call the United Way UOV office at 304-232-4625 and ask to speak with associate director, Maddi Taylor or email her at [email protected].

The United Way of the Upper Ohio Valley is the communities’ giving plan.
