Our 26th Annual Day of Caring will be held on September 15th, 2016!

If you or someone you know is interested in being apart of our planning committee, please give us a call. (505)326-1195

Our fist planning meeting will take place May 18th at 9:00am.

September 17th is San Juan United Way's 25th Annual Day of Caring.

Last Year 91 Projects were submitted by San Juan United Way and Partner Agencies.
These projects included tasks from shampooing carpets to building play grounds.

Again, the need for help in this Community is great. The Day of Caring is a day marked
by hundreds of volunteers that care. Please join us in giving back to the Agencies, by
helping them help others.

If you or your Company would like to volunteer, please contact Sarah Espinoza at San Juan United Way, (505) 326-1195.
