What is The Vancouver Sun United Way Day of Caring?
A program that brings United Way’s funded agency partners together with United Way donors to provide meaningful volunteer opportunities.
What does this accomplish?
United Way donors better understand how together we are positively impacting the lives of vulnerable people across the Lower Mainland. Donors learn about the issues facing our region by getting to see first-hand how their gifts help families move from poverty to possibility, build stronger communities for seniors and help kids be all that they can be. Donors are inspired to continue giving and agencies get some extra help.
Projects we’re looking for
Projects like painting, gardening, landscaping and cleaning that will take a half-day to a full-day to complete. We are also looking for ongoing volunteer opportunities such as assembling care packages or hampers on a weekly basis.

The Kits Neighbourhood House has never looked better! …well that is at least what we would like to think after spending the morning cleaning, sweeping, planting, pruning, and whatever tasks that needed attention around the facility. While this may seem like hard work, we all had big smiles and had tons of fun interacting with the community. It is always a pleasure to learn about the good work that the United Way supports and even better when you can immerse yourself in it, at least for a little bit. What a great way to give back!
