Day of Caring

Thursday, September 13, 2018

United Way of North Idaho envisions a community that works together to ensure children succeed in school, individuals live healthy lives, and everyone has the opportunity to achieve financial well-being.

Thank you North Idaho for an amazing 2017 Day of Caring! Check out the impact report HERE.

Get ready for action!  Each year over 300 business leaders and community members roll up their sleeves and grab their tools to spend the day giving back to our community through the United Way of North Idaho's 2018 Day of Caring.  There are a lot of projects lined up and an army of able people to lend a helping hand to our local nonprofits. Last year, the exciting Day of Caring “Call to Action” saved non-profit agencies more than $30,000 in labor.  The projects will be completed at over 40 locations in North Idaho.

Help strengthen our community by partnering with dozens of great nonprofit organizations...

Day of Caring 2018 Team Sign Ups will begin this summer.
