Serving & Sharing 25th Annual Union County



On Saturday, August 26th, people will mobilize and go out unto our county to lend a hand to our senior citizens & disabled helping with yardwork, light painting, and various other outside tasks. This is an exciting year as it will be the 25th year of United Way’s Union County DAY OF CARING. This year’s event will begin at 7:30 am with a fun-filled kick-off at Wingate University’s Irwin Belk Stadium, complete with a light breakfast, give-aways, and t-shirts while they last.  

In conjunction with the DAY OF CARING event, United Way will be collecting non-perishable food items for those in need here in our community. Items can either be dropped off at the United Way office located at 102 East Franklin St, Monroe or brought to the Irwin Belk Stadium the morning of the event. 

These are wonderful opportunities to serve and to help meet needs in our community.  It truly is a blessing to both the volunteers and to those who receive the help.  If your church, mission team, or youth group is interested in providing a team or know of someone who could benefit from being a recipient of this service, please call your local United Way office at 704-283-1537 or email ifallen@uwcentralcarolinas.org.  Please note that the deadline for registering is July 21st.

Thank you so much!
