Project Release of Liability Waiver Form (Required)

  • Homeowners, Renters, Organizations and Referrals may be submitted for help with projects such as: painting, landscaping, outside repairs, hedge and tree trimming, raking, mulching, staining decks, building ramps, washing windows, and planting and moving flowers.
  • A Day of Caring Committee Member reviews the application, conducts a pre-assessment, and determines if we have the capacity and skill set to complete the project.

Volunteer Applications

Volunteer Release of Liability Waiver Form (Required)

  • A Team Leader assembles a group of volunteers from their workplace, church, or other organization and fills out one “Team Application.” Each volunteer on the team will fill out a volunteer waiver form
  • Individual volunteers are also encouraged to participate!


Once applications have been reviewed and pre-assessments have been completed, our Day of Caring Committee will review all projects and accept or deny based on volunteer capacity and skill set. All approved projects will then be paired with volunteers who match the necessary skill set to complete the project. Team Leaders will contact the homeowners and set up assessment times to look at the tasks and create a shopping list of materials. United Way staff, volunteers, and team captains purchase all materials and drop off supplies to the homes prior to the event.
