Week of Caring


Week of Caring

Week of Caring brings together business leaders, campaign coordinators, nonprofit partners and volunteers across the region to work on service projects that will make an impact. Working together and fostering team-building within our community exemplifies our LIVE UNITED spirit and builds excitement for giving back, both through time and donations.

Impact from Day of Caring 2015

On September 11, we called to action hundreds of volunteers to improve the quality of life in our region and you delivered! The numbers are in!

This year, 954 volunteers completed 40 volunteer projects and contributed 4,305 hours. WOW! Way to show the power of community and our LIVE UNITED spirit. That’s 274 more volunteers than last year!

The morning kicked off with a rally at Cal Expo, where guests received their Day of Caring t-shirts, enjoyed a delicious continental breakfast, and heard from Scott Moak, vice president of Community Impact for the Sacramento Kings and executive director of the King’s Foundation; Ramon Jones, regional vice president for western regional operations for Nationwide Insurance; Senator Richard Pan, member of United Way’s Board of Directors; and Ruben Reyes, superintendent for the Robla School District. The crowd ended the rally with a dance warm up led by the Sacramento Kings dancers and our very own president and CEO Stephanie Bray.
