Foothills United Way’s Day of Caring is the largest event of its kind in Boulder and Broomfield counties. It is held on the 2nd Friday of September in honor of the National 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance.
Day of Caring offers opportunities for volunteers to get out into their communities and to learn about what local organizations do everyday - all while having a great time!
However, all volunteers must be 18 years of age to participate. Volunteer Projects take place between 8:00am and 12:00pm with a Volunteer Celebration Picnic beginning at 12:30pm. Projects vary in size and scope and in most cases include physical labor.

On Friday, September 9th over 1,000 volunteers rolled up their sleeves across our communities to landscape, paint, harvest, build, refurbish and much more, all in one morning! In all, volunteers completed 66 different projects for 47 local organizations and contributed 4,280 hours of volunteer time. This volunteer time equates to an estimated economic value of $111,109 for our community.
