United Way of Clatsop County works to leverage the caring power of the community through volunteerism and philanthropy. Volunteer teams will complete the Day of Caring projects throughout Clatsop County. To be put on the volunteer list, email ClatsopUnitedWay@gmail.com.

Have a project that needs some community love?

United Way of Clatsop County (UWCC) is calling for project proposals from local community-based organizations for the 2023 Day of Caring on April 22nd, 2023. Does a local non-profit need a coat of paint? Maybe a community park needs some weeding? Or a food pantry needs some seasonal organization? Submit a proposal to us by sending the 2023 Day of Caring Project Request  to clatsopunitedway@gmail.com.

Thank you to our Day of Caring sponsor,

TLC Fibre Federal Credit Union!
