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 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 Shae Haning at

Sample projects: painting, landscaping, cleaning, light construction, reading to children, scrapbooking, accompanying seniors on day trips, teaching a class…the sky’s the limit.

Why should you participate?

Involvement in the Day of Caring helps develop teamwork and build 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.

Day of Caring helps present the true face of people in need and the 60 partner agencies that serve them. On this special day, volunteers complete projects submitted by partner agencies. Everyone gets a hands-on opportunity to see how their TAUW contributions help our community each and every day.
