*Due to recent events and progression of the COVID-19 pandemic, GenNext's United Way of Thunder Bay has decided to postpone our Day of Caring event until further notice as the health and safety of our partners, supporters, staff and volunteers is our top priority. Please check back as we will update this page with a new event date or plans moving forward once confirmed.

GenNext is excited to announce our 9th Annual Day of Caring Presented By Resolute Forest Products and Thunder Bay & District Labour Council on Saturday, June 6, 2020!

Day of Caring is a one-day event that creates impact, bringing together dedicated individuals and local community groups for a fun day of volunteering by completing projects to benefit Thunder Bay! We encourage our volunteers to leave their wallets at home and instead donate their time and skills to help complete projects for local not-for-profit organizations who need our help. Past projects have included jobs such as cleaning up neighbourhoods, gardening, painting (inside and out), cleaning up offices, moving equipment or furniture, volunteering at special events/client service projects, helping to prepare meals, and more.

LOOKING TO VOLUNTEER? With several different projects, we have a great need for volunteers with different types of skills. Join as an individual, or as a team with family, friends or co-workers. Participating as a business provides you with a unique team-building and community engagement opportunity for your employees. Past volunteers have enjoyed getting their hands dirty and being able to see the results of their efforts right away.

Day of Caring is a great way to connect with new people, as well as getting to know your existing team members even better! Many volunteers feel a sense of pride and accomplishment when they are able to make such a difference and impact for local organizations that need help.

Volunteers are matched to projects based on skills, group size, and general interest. The week leading up the event, you will receive more information about your team members, which project site you will be at, and what to expect on the day of the event.

Get ready to show some love to your community with GenNext and Day of Caring!
