Day of Caring 2023

United Way's Annual Day of Caring will be here before you know it!

Mark your calendar for Wednesday, August 9, 2023 and check out in May to see the great projects this year


Day of Caring was established to promote the spirit and value of volunteerism, increase the awareness of local human service agencies and demonstrate how people working together for the good of the community can accomplish great things.
Volunteers work in collaboration with United Way partner agencies, other social service organizations, civic agencies, private non-profit agencies, and neighbors in need throughout the Bismarck-Mandan community. Participating organizations are matched with volunteers who choose to donate their time and talents to address our community’s needs.
In 2023:
  • 827 community volunteers pitched in, investing 3,129 hours in our community
  • 51 local projects for individuals, non-profits, parks, and schools were completed throughout Bismarck-Mandan and surrounding communities 
  • Thousands in savings can be reinvested into life-changing community programs and organizations
  • 98 local businesses pitched in to support the event through sponsorships, in-kind donations, and providing employees a paid volunteer day

Day of Caring is an incredible opportunity to tackle large and small projects. But not every project is a good fit. Please review the project guidelines and considerations before submitting a project proposal. Day of Caring projects are dependent upon the generosity of our community. We are always looking for skilled individuals, equipment, project materials and lunch for our volunteer.
