What is Week of Caring?

Week of Caring is the largest corporate volunteer program in the Bay Area. This week-long event brings thousands of people from dozens of local companies together to volunteer at Bay Area nonprofits.

With generous support from Chevron and in partnership with the Volunteer Centers of the Bay Area, Week of Caring provides a free, easy and unique way for corporations to strengthen their community involvement and increase their status as corporate leaders. Week of Caring also provides employees with a tangible way to see the impact that their partnership with United Way is having in the community.

Week of Caring is a great way to promote volunteerism, increase awareness of local human service agencies and give people a chance to see firsthand the results that United Way is getting in our community.   These unique volunteer collaborations provide essential support to our partner agencies – and bolster campaign success.

We want to create a positive experience for our volunteers, one in which participants leave feeling inspired, appreciated and motivated to continue investing in their communities by partnering with United Way.
