What is Day of Caring?

Bartlesville Regional United Way brings the community together to give back every year during our annual Day of Caring.

Non-profit organizations submit one-day projects on behalf of clients, people in need and/or organizations with limited resources. Area companies, schools, service clubs, and other interested individuals volunteer to select one of these projects.

Organizations (Submitting Projects)

Projects may be large or small in scale and may involve activities such as landscaping, painting or cleaning. Others may involve social activities such as an outing for nursing home residents, an ice cream social with seniors or a picnic for members of a parenting support group.

Organizations can submit as many projects as they like, however, we cannot guarantee that each project will be selected. We do, however, encourage multiple submissions.

Volunteers:  Businesses, Organizations, and Individuals

Day of Caring provides corporate team-building opportunities and a way for organizations to give back to the community.

If you or your business/organization would like to volunteer for our Day of Caring, please contact Whitney Virden at 918.336.1044 or email her at whitney@bartlesvilluw.org.

When we receive the full list of projects, we allow businesses to pick and choose which projects they would like to complete. This is done on a first come, first served basis. We encourage businesses to visit the project sites they are interested in completing before making a final decision. This helps everyone understand the full scope of the task, the materials needed, and it helps establish a comfort level in knowing whether the project is something your team can realistically take on and complete.
