UWCNM 3rd Annual Day of caring

September 17, 2022

Sign-Up Today

Volunteer with us on September 17th from 9 am to 12 pm for our annual Day of Caring event 

Day of Caring is a five-county-wide volunteer event that connects the community with agencies across central and northern New Mexico.

This event brings awareness to several New Mexico nonprofits and with your participation, we can help support their needs during our annual event. Participants will learn about volunteerism and support, ways to donate items and connect with organizations making an impact.

This year, we have partnered with the Jennifer Riordan Foundation who has provided United Way with ample support in our efforts to get our five-county community engaged with the local nonprofits that serve their area. All Bernalillo County volunteers are invited to a kickoff breakfast before service projects begin and our other county volunteers will receive breakfast onsite!

Participants will have an opportunity to choose a service project in all the counties we support, including our newest addition Santa Fe County.
