COVID-19 has changed the way we handle most all aspects of our lives. From school and social gatherings, sporting events to ways to benefit our community, 2020 has changed the rules on everything.

Trident United Way’s Day of Caring will be on Nov. 20, 2020 and it’s also the 20th anniversary for this special day of the community giving back and improving lives for everyone. Trident United Way Day of Caring is the largest single day of community service in the area.
You are needed to help this day reach people and organizations to make the biggest impact possible. This year Trident United Way has lined up a series of events that are virtual and remote with little to no contact with others. In other words, COVID-19 changed our world and now we’re changing to stay safe and keep each other safe while benefitting the community.
Day of Caring provides a unique opportunity for agencies and schools to build capacity, improve systems and strengthen partnerships with community volunteers. Throughout the day volunteers will complete agency projects such as supply drives, letters to seniors, cleaning up community areas and many other opportunities!
Trident United Way Day of Caring makes a massive impact. In 2019, More than 5,500 participants from 139 companies completed approximately 264 projects at 152 sites. That equals 23,000 volunteer hours with an estimated* community benefit of $262,000.
The year 2020 doesn’t have to be all bad. Your help can make Nov. 20, 2020 a memorable one that leaves a lasting positive impact by taking part in Trident United Way Day of Caring.
