Tulsa Area United Way hosted a regional food and blood drive for the first Day of Caring at 15 donation sites across the Tulsa area. Nearly 1 in 3 Oklahoma children will lack access to adequate food this year, and your donations helped make a direct and immediate impact for thousands of friends and neighbors in the Tulsa area. 

  • Nearly 50,000 pounds of food collected
  • 155 pints of blood donated, providing life-saving support to more than 400 people
  • 2,000 food donors, representing 144 companies

TAUW connected 200 volunteers from 23 organizations to virtual and remote community service projects for the second Day of Caring. Projects and events focused on career and job readiness, helping people find employment and equipping them with the skills they need to be successful.

Why Should You Participate?

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

After participating in Days 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.

Days of Caring helps present the true face of people in need and the 59 partner agencies that serve them. Volunteers complete projects submitted by partner agencies, 501(c)(3) nonprofits, K-12 public schools and public parks. Everyone gets an up-close look to see how their TAUW contributions help our community each and every day.
