Day of Caring

Day of Caring is a unique opportunity for workplaces that support the United Way of PEI to build both a sense of community and teamwork through the completion of community service projects.  We connect you – the donor – to a local project so that you can experience the impact your donation is making in the community. Day of Caring generates positive community relationships and helps to develop contacts between volunteers, agencies, and workplaces. This annual event gives each of us an opportunity to roll-up our sleeves and work together to make a difference in non-profit agencies in our community, and for the people they serve.

In 2018, we were grateful to have 86 volunteers completing 9 projects supporting a variety of non-profits in both Summerside and Charlottetown. Volunteers helped refresh with some new bright paint, prepared for a yard sale, worked at the PGI Golf Tournament, assisted with yard and garden clean up, landscaping and more...Initiatives were supported at the following locations:  

  • Boys and Girls Club of Charlottetown
  • Farm Center
  • Habitat for Humanity 
  • PEI Literacy Alliance 
  • Family Violence Prevention Services
  • Voluntary Resource Council
  • Stars for Life
  • Boys and Girls Club of Summerside
  • Farmer's Market

Huge thank you to the volunteers from...
