United Way of Jackson County's "Day of Caring"Every Spring, local businesses and individuals take one day to share their unique talents with someone in need. Requests are taken from area residents for items they need built or repaired that they feel will assist them in improving the quality of life they currently maintain. Volunteers then try to accommodate as many of these requests as possible.
Volunteers provide cleaning, painting, and lawn care for many of the area group homes and individuals participating in mental health programs.
If your group home needs assistance, or you know of an individual that is not capable of handling a needed task for their home due to mental illness, please contact United Way so that your request can be considered.
MHAJC is funded by United Way and we support their efforts in helping our community. Please support Jackson County United Way. The money you give to this worthy cause stays in your local community and serves the people that reside in Jackson County.
If you would like to volunteer during this day of caring, please contact the United Way. Some jobs such as cleaning or painting require no special talents, but just a willingness to work for one day helping someone in need. Giving back to your community and giving of yourself is one way to improve your own mental well being.
Many things can be accomplished through the efforts of a caring community. Be a part of the change that can improve someone’s life!
