Bartlesville Regional United Way invites you give back to our community through the annual Day of Caring, with a social distance twist!
Appearing on COMMUNITY CONNECTION on Wednesday, President and CEO, Lisa Cary and Marketing Director Katie Zaun said 2020 has been a bit different and that the Day of Caring will also be a bit different than in year's past.
Cary sais this year, participants are still encouraged to spend the day volunteering, but with social distance etiquette in mind. Those volunteering are encouraged to limit the number of people in groups, wear masks, keep 6 feet apart, or volunteer from home.
Zaun outlined a few of the ways participants can get involved with the Day of Caring including somthing as easy as amplifying facebook posts from partner agencies, which is also very helpful and a powerful way to get the word out for them.
How you can volunteer:
  • Create sidewalk chalk messages at partner agencies
  • Create posters or yard signs of encouragement for partner agencies
  • Assemble care kits for agencies to distribute to clients
  • Assemble agency support kits for staff to support mental health and self care
  • Host a virtual guided art or painting class, live or recorded, for kids or adults
  • Assemble homebound care baskets for individuals in hospice
  • Social media and tech support for partner agencies
  • Amplify facebook posts from partner agencies
  • Write thank you notes for partner agencies and their volunteers
  • Host or record virtual storytelling for kids or adults
  • Teach a guided STEAM experiment for kids or adults
  • Deliver BRUW campaign posters to local businesses
  • Be a dog walker for a local animal shelter or rescue
  • Assemble dog beds for animals for a local animal shelter or rescue
  • Write thank you notes for first responders or teachers
  • Create posters or yard signs of encouragement for local schools
