Volunteers are being sought for Livingston County’s largest one-day community service event.

The Livingston County United Way’s 21st Annual Day of Caring is set for Wednesday, August 9th.

Volunteers are invited to register individually or as a group. Companies, clubs and organizations are encouraged to participate together to help showcase their volunteer spirit while making a difference and bolstering employee morale through team building and connecting individuals to their community. Registration is open through June 21st.

Also this week, the United Way started collecting project requests from local residents, seniors, schools, churches, disabled residents, and non-profit agencies. The work is often minor household repairs/projects, and cleaning and yard work that the homeowner is not able to do on their own. Anyone can recommend a worksite and is encouraged to apply for a neighbor or friend who needs extra help. The deadline to submit a project request is Friday, June 9th.

Various sponsorship opportunities are also available. Sponsorships support funding to help purchase special project materials for residents that do not have financial access to, or the financial means to purchase the needed resources to complete their community service project.
