Trident United Way’s 23rd annual ‘Days of Caring’ event returns
NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) – Trident United Way has hosted the largest community service event in the Lowcountry for over 20 years now and this week it returns.
The Trident United Way Days of Caring event is an opportunity for volunteers to help their local nonprofits and schools. Trident United Way will match nonprofit organizations and schools with volunteers who will complete projects for these organizations that they may not be able to get done on their own. The 2023 projects include:
This event started as just one Day of Caring but is now three “Days of Caring” to offer more options for volunteers and to deliver a greater impact to the community. Trident United Way states that “Days of Caring is a catalyst for year-round volunteer engagement as these teams see the impact they can make when they build community partnerships.” Their goal is for these volunteers to advance the missions of these agencies and even create long-term community partnerships.
This year, Days of Caring has 64 agencies completing 123 different projects with 38 volunteer teams.
For the 2023 Days of Caring event, the largest volunteer teams are Blackbaud, Charleston County Government, Eliott Davis, Greystar, Ingevity, MUSC, Naval Nuclear Training Command, Santee Cooper, SC Ports Authority, Roper St. Francis and more. There are over 2,046 people participating in the Tri-County area.
The Days of Caring event begins Wednesday and ends Friday. For more information about Trident United Way’s Days of Caring, click here.
