Day of Caring



The Day of Caring is a community-wide event in which the United Way of Gibson County connects businesses and volunteers with nonprofit agencies in need of help each year.  Volunteers will spend the day out in the community completing projects for local agencies and organizations such as the YMCA Camp Carson, Gibson County Youth Center, Tulip Tree Health Services, Salvation Army, The ARC of Southwest Indiana, Habitat for Humanity, and the Gibson County Council on Aging.  Projects include tasks such as painting, staining, landscape work, and cleaning.  In just one day more than 100 volunteers donate their time and talents to meaningful projects that nonprofits might not otherwise have the resources to accomplish.

We are in need of your help to make our events a success.  If you are interested in participating for the day, or even hal-day, to help with volunteer projects, please call the United Way office at 812-386-6120, email Jamie at, or contact us through our website.

We always kick off each Day of Caring with a light breakfast at 8:00 a.m., at the Gazebo, on the northwest corner of the courthouse lawn.  All volunteers will receive a free t-shirt to wear.  We also serve a free lunch to the public and all of our volunteers on that day.  If you cannot make it out to volunteer, at least come out for a free lunch and show your support!  Lunch is served from 11:00 a.m.- 1:00 p.m..  Bring a friend and come on out!
