Multiple Chamber members support United Way 'Day of Caring'

On Thursday June 22nd, teams of workplace volunteers and community partners came together to complete some much needed work at not-for profit organizations for United Way Hasting and Prince Edward’s annual Day of Caring, proudly presented by Welch LLP & Loyalist College. 

“This year we were anticipating a similar turnout to 2022, and quickly realized that would not be the case. With a surprising 100 ADDITIONAL volunteers registered to take part, we are so proud to host a record breaking year!” says Jennifer Smith, Director of Community Relations of United Way HPE.

The record turnout saw an all-time high of 263 dedicated volunteers from 27 local workplaces completing 46 separate projects at not-for-profits in Belleville, Quinte West, Prince Edward County & Central Hastings. Projects ranged from landscaping, painting and cleaning to installing a new walkway, deck repairs and robust shelving, to name a few.

The day began at 8:00am with a morning Kick-Off event at Quinte Mall where volunteers enjoyed coffee and snacks and remarks before collecting their team packages and departing to their assigned community projects.

Each team received free lunch and snacks, generously donated by Feta & Olive, Quinte Mall & Tim Horton’s.

Day of Caring is a rewarding and impactful day bringing people in our coming together to help those who need it most. To the workplace volunteers who dedicated their time and the many sponsors who helped make this important day possible, THANK YOU!!” says Smith
