Week of Caring

For over 30 years, United Way of Lancaster County has brought hundreds of volunteers together to participate in service projects that benefit the wider community in the Day of Caring. This year we are expanding into a Week of Caring to provide more opportunity for individuals, families, and teams of volunteers from local companies and organizations to participate by rolling up their sleeves and completing projects that benefit non-profit organizations. This year’s Week of Caring will be Monday, September 11 through Saturday, September 16, 2023.

"Get Connected. Get Help. - Never have those words, our tagline, meant more to us. The breadth of needs continue to increase as individuals try their best to navigate their new normal during a pandemic. Individuals not needing to seek services before reached out for help, and thankfully, United Way's investment in 211 allowed us to continue to respond, with compassion and empathy, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year."
