Agencies
United Way of Muscatine (UWM) invites area agencies to participate in our 10th Annual Day of Caring Part One on September 14, 2016. On this day, we hope to have a team complete a meaningful project for your agency or a client in need.
Day of Caring exemplifies Living United when business partners join with local civic and community groups to connect with others in the Muscatine community who need our help.
There are so many benefits to your agency uniting with our community on Day of Caring. Prior to September, we will strive to match your organization with volunteers who will complete a project of your choosing. We encourage you to submit as many projects as needed. There are no guarantees on every project being matched. We will try to accommodate your preferences. This Day of Caring is with adults only.
All entries must be mailed to United Way of Muscatine, 208 W. 2nd St. Ste. 201, Muscatine, IA 52761 or faxed to (563) 263-8572 no later than August 19, 2016. All forms must be completed in their entirety. There will be a meeting for all projects on Thursday, September 1 at 2:00 p.m. at United Way. Contact Nichole Sorgenfrey at (563) 263-5963 or e-mail [email protected] for more information.
Volunteers
United Way of Muscatine (UWM) invites volunteers to participate in our 10th Annual Day of Caring Part One on September 14, 2016! This is a unique opportunity for your group to complete a meaningful service project for a local nonprofit agency or an area resident who needs a hand.
Day of Caring exemplifies what it means to LIVE UNITED. It takes all of us working together to help create a healthy and prosperous community.
There are many benefits to your group uniting with the community on Day of Caring. Through your involvement, you and your team are able to assist an agency or a neighbor with a project that would not normally be completed for lack of money, resources, or staff.
When you build a team of committed volunteers within your community to serve, you show a spirit of compassion and unity to your customers that reflects the mission of United Way.
We are excited about connecting you and your volunteers with our community partners on Day of Caring! All entries must be mailed to United Way of Muscatine, 208 W. 2nd St. Ste. 201, Muscatine, IA 52761 or faxed to (563) 263-8572 no later than August 19, 2016. Contact Nichole Sorgenfrey at (563) 263-5963 or e-mail [email protected] for more information.
Together, united, we can inspire hope and create opportunities for a better tomorrow. That’s what it means to LIVE UNITED.

• Receive information on what each team member will need for the Day of Caring.
