The annual Day of Caring offers businesses, individuals, organizations, and civic clubs the opportunity to help local nonprofit agencies accomplish much-needed projects during one day of organized volunteerism. Hundreds of volunteers  come together each year on United Way’s Day of Caring to volunteer their time at service projects throughout Berkeley, Jefferson and Morgan counties.

The day also featured a Mega Food Drive.
