Our 2023 Day of Caring event was an enormous success! 🙌🏼

More than 50 volunteers came together on Friday, June 16th 2023, for a day filled with volunteer work and community building.  Our 2023 Day of Caring was a wonderful opportunity to give back to our community and make a real difference in the lives of those around us.

Local not for profit organizations were invited to share a wish list project that they just could not complete without help and, United Way Peterborough & District put out a call to find volunteers who were passionate about helping everyone in our community to thrive.  The seven rojects ranged from gardening and landscaping to minor building projects and repairs and, even included the opportunity to prepare and serve one of our Partner Agency’s volunteers at a thank you lunch!

We would like to send a huge thank you to the UWP Board of Directors and Campaign Cabinet, as well as the corporate teams who, not only run Community Campaigns for United Way, but also are the first to volunteer to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty to help our neighbours in the City and County of Peterborough.  🙏 RBC, Scotiabank, BMO and CIBC!
