United Way of Jackson County's "Day of Caring"Mental Health America of Jackson County (MHAJC) is a proud participant in the United Way Program offering a “Day of Caring” for Jackson County residents. If you have ever wished you could donate more time or money to a worthy cause, this may be just the program for you.
Local businesses and individuals take one day a year 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.
MHAJC has provided cleaning, painting, furniture, and equipment for leisure activities 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 us so that your request can be considered. We may be able to help in matching the volunteer with the job needed so we can accomplish as much as possible during this day of caring.
MHAJC is mostly funded by United Way and we support their efforts in helping our community. If you are asked to give to United Way at your place of work, we hope that you do so generously. 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 to help during this day of caring, please call us so we can assign you to assist with a job that has been accepted. 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.
So many things can be accomplished through the efforts of a caring community. Be a part of the change that can improve someone’s life.
