ABOUT THE WEEK OF CARING:


Each fall, United Way of Greater Lorain County partners with organizations across Lorain County to aid in several volunteer opportunities. You can facilitate powerful change in our community by giving back at a Week of Caring project near you. Started in 1993 as a single day of caring, the project expanded in 2011 to include an entire week's worth of volunteer opportunities throughout Greater Lorain County. This year the week of caring is September 10th to September 16th

The Week of Caring is managed by the Lorain County Volunteer Connection, a strategic partnership between HandsOn Northeast Ohio and United Way of Greater Lorain County that strives to offer individuals with the platform for action while providing non-profit organizations with a vehicle to further their missions.
