Day of Caring is a United Way annual volunteer event in the fall that brings the community together to create a positive impact on the nonprofits that help those in need. 
This year's Day of Caring was on Friday, September 18, 2020.


Volunteer Peninsula is a website managed by United Way of the Virginia Peninsula to bring together volunteers and needs in our community.  Local nonprofits in our service area can use Volunteer Peninsula to post needs/projects year-round and specifically for United Way's Day of Caring.
