About: The Day of Caring was created by the SUW to match volunteers to service projects at our Partner Agency organizations who facilitate health and human services for free or little cost to the residents of Schuylkill County. The volunteers spend hours at the nonprofit sites, working on both indoor and outdoor projects. Projects vary from gardening to painting, depending on volunteer interest and skill set. We are fortunate and grateful for the hundreds of volunteers who take part in service projects at sites across Schuylkill County every year.
We volunteer in honor of Captain Jason B. Jones who dedicated his life to his community and country.

Why we volunteer…
- This lends a helping hand to our Partner Agencies and community, allowing them to complete the many other projects they must get done in preparation for the spring and summer months.
- One hour of volunteering saves our local organizations a minimum of $5,000. This means that this dollar amount can be saved to use for serving those in need.
