Volunteer signups start today for United Way’s Day of Caring

Today is the start of registration for volunteers for Bartholomew County United Way’s annual Day of Caring.

Day of Caring is a day-long event where community members and businesses help with projects to benefit local not for profit groups and to complete projects to help residents in need. This year’s event is being held on May 21st.

Last year’s event had to be canceled due to COVID-19. This year’s Day of Caring will include precautions to maintain volunteers’ health and safety during the pandemic. Indoor projects will be limited to a maximum of six to eight volunteers per shift, determined by facility size. Outdoor projects will be limited to a maximum of 20 volunteers per shift, based on the size of the outdoor space. Masks will be required and social distancing maintained.

Volunteers of all ages and skill levels are welcome to participate. Projects will include planting flowers, mulching and painting, along with organizing and sorting donations.
