Day of Caring

 Tulsa’s Day of Caring is one of the nation’s largest days
of community service -
last year, more than 5,500 volunteers completed 400 projects.
 

 For groups of individuals: Roll up your sleeves and help others!
For company teams:
Promote teamwork, build morale, and give back to your community!

We can arrange the project that’s right for you and your staff.

 
 To volunteer, or register your company team, please
contact the Community Investments department at shaning@tauw.org 
Sample projects: painting, landscaping, cleaning, light construction, scrapbooking, accompanying seniors on day trips, teaching a class…the sky’s the limit.
 
Why should you participate?

Involvement in the Day of Caring promotes teamwork and builds morale among employees while they give back to the community.

After participating in the Day of Caring, the Tulsa Area United Way becomes more than a logo, pledge card or campaign rally, it becomes the means by which an individual can assist many people through one gift.

The Day of Caring represents our strength as a community through the hard work that we do to support Tulsans in need and the 60 partner agencies that serve them. On this special day, volunteers complete projects submitted by both partner agencies and many other local area non-profits. Everyone gets a hands-on opportunity to see how their TAUW contributions help our community each and every day.
