Press Release:

On May 17, 2017 the Genesee County United Way will be employing the resources of 400+ voluteers for the 10th Annual Day of Caring.  The United Way Day of Caring provides local businesses with volunteer opportunities throughout Genesee County where their employees can harness their energies to make Genesee County a better place to live.  This year there are over 35 non-profit agencies that will benefit from volunteer support to paint, lanscape, and perform general beautification projects. 

This year’s event will feature a record number of volunteers.  What started out as 70 enthusiastic people ten years ago has grown to be a signature Genesee County event.  This year 427 volunteers from 38 local businesses and organizations will take place in what is destined to be a great example of people paying it forward in Genesee County.

The Kick-off event at Dwyer Stadium at 8:00 is sponsored by Lawley Genesee and includes breakfast donated by Batavia Dunkin Donuts and cheers performed by each volunteer team.  Following a great day of hard work at one of our 35 worksites the volunteers will partake in a wrap-up celebration at Terry Hills sponsored by Oakwood Hills and UMMC.  Stories will be told, a slide show of the day will be shown and all will have a good time!

It is estimated that a total of over 3,200 people hours will be contributed throughout the day with an estimated $48,000 in labor costs provided.  Perhaps the largest single volunteering day in Genesee County!
