Gather Your Team and Choose a Great Project for United Way Days of Caring, September 28

Want to make a difference in our community? Are you looking for a meaningful volunteer opportunity for your office or organization?

Then sign up today for United Way Days of Caring, Central Florida’s largest community-wide volunteer event.

Last year, more than 1,000 Lockheed Martin volunteers helped spruce up Edgewood Children’s Ranch.

In addition to helping those in need, Days of Caring offers a wealth of benefits to those who participate. Pre-planned projects provide fun team-building experiences, as well as terrific opportunities to touch lives, learn more about community needs and recognize the importance of volunteerism.

Last year was our biggest, most successful event ever with more than 2,000 volunteers from Lockheed Martin, Publix, Ernst & Young, UPS, AT&T and 50 other leading companies taking part. In all, 72 projects were completed, providing much-needed assistance to local nonprofits and the people they serve.

Publix volunteers at Second Harvest Food Bank.

So don’t miss out! Dozens of great projects are now available for this year’s event, including:

  • Mentoring teens through a career day at Pace Center for Girls
  • Serving breakfast to families at the Coalition for the Homeless
  • Helping toddlers create art projects at Orlando Day Nursery
  • Sprucing up a Boys and Girls Club game room
  • Hosting a food drive for clients served by Jewish Family Services
  • And much, much more!

Simply click here to choose your project and get started. For more information, contact Jessica Schwendeman, United Way Community Participation Manager, at (407) 429-2136 or e-mail
