We are looking for volunteers to give their time and talents to service projects during United Way of Carlisle & Cumberland County’s Day of Caring. If you, your co-workers, friends or family have been part of this great effort, you know what a fun and meaningful experience it is. Day of Caring is an opportunity for people to donate a morning to help local non-profit organizations complete needed work projects and to learn more about the needs of human service organizations in the greater Carlisle area.   If you are a non-profit organization in need of help please click here to register your project(s)

On Friday, October 6th volunteers will kick off by meeting at 8:00 am at Allison Hall, 99 Mooreland Ave., on the Dickinson College Campus.  There your team can rendezvous, pick-up t-shirts, enjoy coffee and Entenmann’s Donuts, and get final instructions on project assignments.  By 8:30 am everyone will be off to work and will finish their projects around 12:00 noon. A free lunch will then be provided to participants at the LeTort Park Pavilion from 12:15 – 1pm!
