2017 Nancy Perry Day of Caring

United Way of Greater Topeka’s Nancy Perry Day of Caring is an annual event where volunteers from our corportate partners work on one-time service projects with nonprofit agencies in Shawnee County. Participating agencies are matched with volunteers from our corporate partners who choose to give their time and services in an effort to impact our communities' needs.

Nancy Perry Day of Caring offers an extraordinary opportunity for corporate volunteers to roll up their sleeves and make a difference in our community.

Let's increase the awareness of agencies who meet the critical needs of our community by promoting the spirit and value of volunteerism.

Last September there was close to 1000 volunteers who completed 78 projects for 39 nonprofit agencies throughout Shawnee County.  We anticipate a great turnout again this year but let's not stop with a great turnout; let’s really shake things up and make 2017 the biggest event yet. 

Pitch in. Give back. Join us.
