United Way Day of Caring at BYU

Brigham Young University is proud to participate in the United Way’s Day of Caring on Wednesday, September 8, and encourages faculty, administration, and staff to jointly contribute their valuable time and skills.

Breakfast will be served at 7:30 a.m. in the LaVell Edwards Football Stadium and service activities will begin shortly after, lasting until noon. Volunteers should come dressed to complete such projects as landscaping, construction, cleaning, etc.

The United Way is a worldwide organization and the largest charity in the United States. Its mission is “to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities around the world to advance the common good.”

The three main goals of the United Way are to improve education, help people achieve financial stability, and promote healthy lives. Efforts to reach these goals are categorized under three possible methods of involvement: give, advocate, and volunteer. Whether via donations, spreading the word, or lending muscle, people everywhere are encouraged to assess their position and get involved.

Be a part of BYU’s Day of Caring on September 8, and help to increase cooperation and compassion within your community. In this small part of the world, you can make a difference.

President Samuelson has approved 4 service hours “with pay” for each full time employee who clears Day of Caring attendance with his/her immediate supervisor and is registered.  To register, contact Phyllis Jensen at phyllis_jensen@byu.edu before August 28.
