Day of Caring

Day of Caring

Thank you to everyone who took part in the 2023 Day of Caring – over 400 volunteers  from 31 workplaces across KFL&A completed projects at 41 agencies across the city!  Teams helped agencies with painting, planting, grass cutting, cleaning, building furniture and even excavating! These projects would not be possible without you. And a big thanks to all the amazing sponsors, volunteers and organizers. 

For the past 20+ years, United Way volunteer teams have shown their local love and helped agencies with gardening, renovations, and more at the annual Day of Caring. In 2024, the United Way Day of Caring will continue this tradition once again with in-person projects to help agencies throughout the community! 

Day of Caring will take place on Friday, June 7th, 2024

Day of Caring brings together volunteers from local organizations and local agencies, to provide much needed assistance through projects that often include repair work, gardening, painting, and cleaning. This fun event generates a team building experience and community engagement for all involved. This one-day community-wide blitz of painting, landscaping, and light maintenance for local and under-resourced agencies will conclude with a celebration following the Day of Caring projects.

Any questions or inquiries about how you can show your local love and participate can be directed to the United Way KFL&A at or 613-542-2674 ext. 1205
