Hundreds of volunteers rolled up their sleeves and completed service projects at nonprofit agencies and schools across Escambia and Santa Rosa counties during United Way of West Florida’s Day of Caring.
The final numbers are in. Here is the impact Day of Caring made on our community.
More than 500 volunteers from 35 companies and organizations spent the day cleaning, painting, building, and more.
Those volunteers put in 1,625 hours of work on their projects.
The value of donated time for those volunteers is $46,370.
“We are so thankful to live in such a caring community,” said Laura Gilliam, United Way of West Florida President and CEO. “The heart and sweat these volunteers put into Day of Caring make a huge difference for local nonprofits and our neighbors they serve.”
The next Day of Caring is only a few months away. It will return to its traditional fall date in October of 2022. An exact date will be announced soon.
Day of Caring would not be possible without the following sponsors: Central Credit Union of Florida, Florida Blue, Gulf Winds Credit Union, Navy Federal Credit Union, and Xtreme Plumbing and Septic.
