Why You Should Volunteer

“What I like about Day of Caring is that everything was well-organized and all the locations I've worked at were wonderful.”

The Buffalo community for which you volunteer benefits from the surge of energy and effort you bring, but you benefit as well. When you volunteer, you:

  • Get satisfaction from making a difference
  • Build your teamwork skills
  • Enjoy the camaraderie working with colleagues
  • Share your pride of Buffalo at WNY's largest volunteer event

UB is proud to be a part of the 25th annual Day of Caring on Wednesday, August 16, 2017. This is Western New York's largest community service event, mobilizing thousands of volunteers to complete hands-on, community service projects in Erie and Niagara counties. Organized by the United Way of Buffalo and Erie County, the Day of Caring serves as a launch of the university's annual Campaign for the Community and offers a wonderful opportunity in our community.
