Day of Caring

Every year we look forward to kicking off our Annual United Way of Greater Lima Campaign with a day of giving back.  Allen County is a giving community as evidenced by the hundreds of volunteers who turn out each year to help our non-profit community partners get things done that aren't possible within the non-profit budget and normal staffing levels.  When we all come together, so much good can be accomplished!  Thank you, everyone, who committed to Day of Caring!    

September 9th, 2022 was a great day for the Greater Lima area!  Three hundred plus volunteers joined us at The Ohio State University at Lima for the kick-off of the 2022 United Way of Greater Lima Campaign.  We had special "appearances" from none other than the Beatles, Stephen Tyler Smith and "half-pint"!  (Check out the photos below!)  Our theme this year is IMAGINE...IF WE ALL CAME TOGETHER.  The rest of that day, we saw what can happen if we all come together!  Those 300 plus volunteers spread themselves out in the greater Lima area to work hard and do good!


We kicked off our 2021 Campaign with a sports themed event this year. We had 350 volunteers come together to help join us in making an impact in the area. Volunteers served agencies all over the county including the YWCA, West Ohio Food Bank, The ARC of Allen County, and much more! A huge thank you to all of our volunteers that came this year to be All-In Team United to help create positive changes in our community.
