Days of Caring is the community’s largest volunteer-driven service opportunity and the most impactful week of the year! Each year, United Way of the Mid-South equips more than 1,600 volunteers to dig in and get their hands dirty, benefiting over 50 nonprofits with more than 100 projects all across the Mid-South. Join other community-minded people for an unforgettable selfless time of fun. Join us to be part of the change YOU want to see in the Mid-South community.

For volunteers who want to participate, but can’t get out of the office during the day, we offer evening service projects with Memphis Botanic Gardens and Women United.  Join Women United as we sort the donated items received during the collection drive. These items ensure that women and children living in the shelter have the necessities they need to get back on their feet.
