2021 Spring Days of Caring Sponsorships

Sponsorship is the perfect way to support UWRC's 2021 Spring Days of Caring, promoting volunteerism, collaboration, partnership and giving back to our community when it needs it most. Since the pandemic began, UWRC has been striving to meet the critical needs of our community as we face this unprecedented health and economic crisis. Our impact has been felt county-wide at food pantries, community centers, nonprofits and individual homes, making a difference in the lives of our neighbors, and your sponsorship will enable us to continue this essential work.

See what our 2020 Fall Day of Caring participants have to say:

"BRIDGES is truly thankful to its partner, United Way of Rockland, for their donation of activity kits. The puzzle books will provide enjoyment for the people we serve including those who are spending more time indoors during the pandemic. The masks will help keep the people we serve and the community around them safe as we work to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Thank you again to the team at United Way of Rockland as well as the community volunteers who helped put these together."
Carlos Martinez, LMSW, CEO/Executive Director, Bridges, Inc.



"I did 20 hygiene kits and 20 literacy kits with my daughter. I asked her if she knew why we were putting these together and she said, "We are doing these for people who don't have stuff." She really took the time to make them nice and even wanted to decorate the bags and box with stickers. It was such a nice bonding moment for me and my daughter."
Chase Auli, M&T Bank Volunteer



"The Arts Council of Rockland participated in the UWRC 2020 Fall Day of Caring recruiting volunteers to design and paint a mural for the Haverstraw Head Start playground. We are grateful that the United Way of Rockland County recognizes the power that the arts have to bring people together. While these volunteer art projects can beautify a community, more importantly, they provide the experience of art in a way that is accessible to all. During a time when we have very few opportunities to gather, volunteer art projects allow us to have a shared experience that many of us are craving right now. ACOR is looking forward to the next volunteer opportunity to partner with UWRC!"
Cheryl Baun, Executive Director, Arts Council of Rockland



"A big THANK YOU to United Way of Rockland County on their 2020 Fall Day of Caring. Head Start of Rockland, which has sites in Haverstraw, Nyack and Spring Valley, was the lucky recipient of their generous donation of 450 Literacy Kits. The children received a book, 24 pack of crayons, coloring sheets, construction paper, and stickers to take home. Thank you for making literacy both an educational and joyful experience for our students and their families!"
Tanya Soto, Site Coordinator, Haverstraw Head Start
