Week of Caring 2023 - September 18th - 23rd

Our annual Day of Caring event has evolved to Week of Caring in 2023. This year, our focus is to support unhoused families and individuals by providing hygiene kits to regional nonprofits and packing and distributing groceries at a food pantry. There will also be options to volunteer at one of our donor group service projects on Saturday, September 23rd.

2022 3rd annual Day of Caring Event

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

In 2022, we partnered with the Jennifer Riordan Foundation who provided United Way with ample support in our efforts to get our five-county community engaged with the local nonprofits that serve their area. 

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