Week of Caring is back! It’s our biggest annual volunteer collaboration, and we are so excited to bring it back.
WHAT IS WEEK OF CARING? Week of Caring engages volunteers from local, community-minded businesses in providing volunteer assistance to nonprofits in the Valley who need a helping hand. Past projects include spring cleaning and repairs at the Wild Bird Rehabilitation Center and Girl Scout Camp Togowoods, park and playground clean-ups, donations sorting at turn-a-leaf, grounds work at Family Promise, and more! Our business volunteerism partners have come from establishments across the Valley, like Wells Fargo Bank, MVFCU, First National Bank Alaska, and other energetic volunteers who give their time to assist.
We recently expanded from a single day of activities to an entire week, to accommodate our partners’ schedules. Now, more than ever, our local nonprofits need a helping hand to accomplish projects that may otherwise go unfinished.
HOW DO I GET INVOLVED? Fill out our online application to get started! You will be asked if you are an agency in need of volunteer help, OR a volunteer/volunteer group wishing to provide assistance. Please select only ONE. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, and a UWMS staff member will contact you to continue the partnership. Questions? Email Jason Ortiz or call (907)745-5822.
