Days of Caring: September – October 2016
Looking to develop your leadership skills, teamwork, or service this year? Days of Caring offers hands-on experience in a United Way agency as you see your dollars put to work. Sponsored by the United Way of Greater St. Louis, Days of Caring places teams of 6 to 15 people at local agencies for a half-day project. Opportunities include interacting with children or the elderly. Projects like yard work, gardening and painting are also available. Opportunities are offered Monday through Friday
Not seeing a project that fits your needs on this site?
If you are unable to locate a project on the site that fits your needs, you can request a special project that will be set up just for you and your team! You can request a new project that is currently not on the list below (the date and time of current projects that are listed below can not be changed, however). Additional projects that will take place in November will be added to this list in mid-October and will be exclusive to Maritz. To request a new project idea, please fill out our Days of Caring Project Request Form in mid-October. One of our Days of Caring committee members will contact you to confirm your request.
