United Way’s “5 Days of Caring”

Calling all volunteers! United Way of Hernando County will be hosting their “5 DAYS OF CARING” throughout the month of November. This month-long initiative promotes local volunteerism and multitude giving opportunities, bringing people together who have a passion for helping others. Each week in November will host an event, program, or training, engaging both residents and corporations to take action.

Throughout the month, volunteers engage in a range of activities such as United Way’s “GIVE THANKS, GIVE FOOD” distribution, community clean-up/beautification projects, and informational seminars! This initiative not only provides immediate assistance to those in need, but also fosters a sense of unity and collaboration among participants during the holiday season.
