2018 Day of Caring Is Coming In July!

After a few years off, the United Way of Elgin is thrilled to bring back its popular Day of Caring Volunteer Event on Friday, July 27, 2018.

The 20th Day of Caring will feature projects from 9 Elgin area health and human services agencies and three elementary schools. A total of 130 volunteers are needed to complete these projects. Work will take place between 9:00 am and 2:00 pm.

This year, the event will kick off with a morning rally at Larkin High School, with coffee and donuts along with some remarks from United Way of Elgin board members. Volunteers will then go to their assigned project locations. After spending a few hours painting, planting, building, cleaning, and mulching, United Way of Elgin board members will deliver a boxed lunch to all volunteers.

Are you ready to get your hands dirty? We'd love to serve with your team on July 27th. If you are interested in volunteering, please visit to register by Friday, June 29. You can select either an indoor or outdoor project, and can sign up as an individual or with a team.

The Day of Caring is made possible thanks to sponsorships from Hoffer Foundation, DeJames Builders, Dr. William Holevas, My Advisor and Planner, LLC, Stoll Real Estate, and TBK Bank.
