What is Day of Caring? 

Traditionally, Day of Caring has brought hundreds of volunteers together to complete a day of service for our community. In the past volunteers come together for a morning rally and then disbursed to their projects. Projects have been made up of large teams, to work on a wide variety of things including parks, renovating organizations, and fixing individuals' homes. After volunteering, everyone would congregate again for a celebration lunch. 

Application for Project Nominations: 

United Way of the Lakeshore is currently seeking project nominations for volunteer teams to complete. Projects can be in Muskegon, Newaygo, or Oceana counties. 

Veteran Homes: This year’s project, MISSION UNITED, wants to pay special tribute to those that have already served and done so much for our community, our Veterans. We are looking for opportunities to serve our local veteran families by assisting with minor outdoor home repairs and improvements, landscaping, and yard work.

Agency Projects: Are you a nonprofit organization, school, church, or governmental agency that is in need of help with a project? We are here to help! We have painted, landscaped, built, and repaired several things for partners in the past. 

Community Projects: Is there a community space or park in need? We have revitalized dozens of community spaces over the last 30 years.
