Take a day with your co-workers to change lives

A Day of Caring is a unique opportunity for your workplace to partner with a United Way Winnipeg agency partner or nonprofit organization. You’ll complete a volunteer project that contributes to local community development, renewal, and pride.

Volunteering will help strengthen a network of social programs that have a direct impact on the lives of Winnipeggers every year.
