Days of Caring is United Way of Erie County’s annual community-wide volunteer mobilization effort. Volunteering is essential to a healthy community – it creates ownership, builds relationships, fosters civic responsibility and fulfills vital needs. Each year, United Way helps connect thousands of volunteers to service projects across the community. Projects include everything from outdoor cleanups and landscaping to painting and gardening. This year, there are more than 3,000 volunteers expected to mobilize. More than 65 projects helping nonprofits, schools and neighborhoods throughout Erie County are scheduled to take place between April 20-26, 2015.
There are still projects in need of volunteers. Those interested in signing up should visit Get Connected, the region’s volunteer portal: www.getconnectederie.org/aam/general
Thanks to the generous support of the Erie SeaWolves, each volunteer in the 2015 Days of Caring will receive a FREE ticket voucher to attend a game! Additional support and partnerships helping to make Days of Caring possible include Waste Management, The City of Erie, PennDOT, Sheetz and The Great PA Clean-Up.
