United Way of Whiteside County’s Week of Caring 2022 is coming soon!  The Week of Caring is designed to connect volunteers with the needs of our community. During this week, we offer volunteer opportunities for individuals, families, and businesses.  Get in the spirit of giving by participating and stay connected to your community!

Have a project idea?
We would love to help with needed projects that benefit the community or those in need. We are looking for projects that can be done by individuals, families or co-worker groups in person or at home.

Here are a few examples:

  • Need envelopes stuffed? Volunteer can help in person or pick up the supplies and work at home with their family to prepare a mailing.
  • Landscaping needs? Have a painting project? Pick a couple of small projects that can be done by volunteers.  Make sure you have enough tools for your crew.
  • Notice a road with a lot of litter? Have a neighbor that struggles with yard work?  Clean up can help beautify our community.
  • Get creative! Think about things that need to be done, we can help!

To submit a project, email me at   Please remember, organizations need to provide all supplies for their project.

The Week of Caring would not be possible with volunteers from businesses, groups, clubs, teams, families and individuals. Those interested in volunteering should register below.
