United Way Again Gears Up For "Day of Caring" 2016!

2014 Day of Caring 015Front Royal, VA – The United Way of Front Royal/Warren County announces the opening of the planning for the 2016 Day of Caring for Front Royal and Warren County…and we need your help to get clients!

This year’s event will be held on FRIDAY, MAY 6, 2016, from 8 am to 4 PM, and is currently looking for good clients who might need a bit of help.

As with every year, the hardest part of this project is finding qualified individuals to work for. All clients must meet the following criteria for acceptance:

  • **Live in Warren County or Front Royal
  • **Own the home that will receive the repairs (or family-owned)
  • **Be low-income, disabled or otherwise and unable to complete the work

If you are aware of anyone needing some help to stay comfortable in their homes, PLEASE have them contact us here at the United Way. Last year we had more volunteers than we could possibly use….please help us find some good clients to help out this year.

The United Way will consider ALL applications that meet the above criteria; however, preference will be given to individuals who have NOT received assistance in prior DOC events.

Last year, more than 24 projects were completed with more than 150 volunteers from our community giving of their time and money to make it happen. Projects from yard work to carpet replacement, window repair to plumbing fixes all happened on Friday with the help of these wonderful people from all over Warren County.

Please let your United Way know if you are aware of any homeowners that could use our assistance, or if YOU need assistance yourself.

Call the United Way office at 540-635-3636,

Application Deadline is March 31, 2016


If you would like to volunteer and help our community,
please fill out and send in a Volunteer Waiver Statement.
