Day of Caring
#UWSCDoC | September 2019
Each year, United Way of Snohomish County's Day of Caring brings together volunteers who are committed to creating positive change in our community. This year, many projects will help families with young children struggling to get by, including a few projects from our CORE Collaboratives.
Volunteer teams, organized primarily by local companies, complete projects for local nonprofit agencies that often lack the necessary resources to tackle such important initiatives themselves.
Last year, more than 400 volunteers across Snohomish County came out to make a difference in our community! This year, we need up to 1,000 volunteers for 29 projects across the county.

Letter Carriers Food Drive
Saturday, May 11, 2019
Each year on the second Saturday in May, letter carriers collect non-perishable food donations from houses across the county. These donations go directly to local food pantries to provide food to people in need, and they need your help! On Saturday, May 11, Letter Carriers will be picking up community members' food donations and bringing them to post offices where volunteers will sort and pack the food to go to local food banks.
Stay tuned for more details on how to donate and volunteer!
At Trade UP, high schoolers get an entire school day to explore a variety of trade jobs—from firefighting and construction to water management and computer-aided design.
Students receive a timecard to simulate a day on the job, and they are encouraged to get their hands dirty to see what the trades can offer. With information about apprenticeships, salaries, and “a day in the life” explained by seasoned professionals, students get to experience a hands-on career fair hosted by our Snohomish County Labor Council.
