The United Way’s 4th Annual Day of Caring

By Kristy Pochailo

The United Way’s GenNext Cabinet is proud to launch their 4th Annual Day of Caring, which is presented by Bombardier. Day of Caring brings together dedicated individuals and local non-for-profit organizations for a day of volunteering to benefit the community. This fun filled event brings together hundreds of volunteers who donate their time, and skills, to help complete projects for not-for-profit organizations in Thunder Bay; and shows the amazing things that are possible when we work together to better our community.

“The United Way’s GenNext Cabinet is super excited to again be hosting the 4th Annual Day of Caring, and to be helping non for profits who give so much back to this great city of ours,” says Keith Anderson, Day of Caring Co-Chair & GenNext Cabinet Chair

This is a single day commitment where participants team up, work together, and leave at the end of day with the sense of accomplishment from completing a distinct project – all while learning more about the invaluable services these local organizations provide in our community.

“I am excited to see this event grow again this year. I’m proud to see the community come together, while leaving their wallets at home to volunteer their time on well need projects within our city,” says Jessica Leinich, Day of Caring Co-Chair.

With several different projects taking place we have a great need for volunteers with different types of skills. Building/carpentry, planting gardens, spring cleaning, and assisting with special client based projects are just a few of the fun things that volunteers will be helping out with.

Volunteers can join as individuals, with friends, family, and co-workers, or as a team. Volunteer registration is open now until June 1st – go to www.uwaytbay.ca to sign up, and to get more information on this event. You can also email doc@uwaytbay.ca directly for information.
