United Way Day of Caring unites the community

The United Way Day of Caring is a way for institutions and businesses to give back to the community through a day of volunteering with a nonprofit organization. On Sept. 14 from 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m., voulunteer groups from all over Grand Rapids will work together with this year’s nonprofit organizations, which include Catherine’s Health Center, West Michigan Environmental Action Council, and Alpha Women’s Center of Grand Rapids.

Grand Valley State University faculty, staff and students are welcome to sign up, but registration for the Alpha Women’s Center is reserved for people 25 years or older and in the medical field.
The United Way Day of Caring helps to bring communities together to work toward a shared goal of a better place to live, said GVSU Community Service Learning Center Coordinator Jeff Mutch.
