Workplaces Show They Care During United Way’s Fall Day of Caring

(October 5, 2017) – Today, over 150 volunteers from 10 different organizations took a detour from work, and instead travelled to one of United Way’s 53 partner agencies to volunteer for Fall Day of Caring.

At 15 different sites, employees across the region saw the impact their donations have in our community.

Here are some of the projects they worked on:

  • Painting, cleaning, and organizing the space at CAMH’s new mental health programming facility, Recovery West
  • Assisting adults with intellectual disabilities at Community Living Mississauga to participate in community activities
  • Craft beading with individuals at March of Dimes Canada
  • Preparing for fall at Our Place Peel – raking leaves, putting up decorations, and cleaning up the side of the shelter

This is a unique team building opportunity that unites hundreds of people to not only build a stronger community, but to reduce poverty, prevent poverty, and help people living in crisis right now.
