WHY: Orange County United Way’s quarterly Days of Caring events enable our partners to give their time back to the community through volunteering. These large-scale events are inspirational ways to connect with underserved individuals and families and each other. Each quarter’s event focuses on one of United Way’s four buildings blocks for a good life: Education, Income, Health and Housing. This upcoming volunteer project will help local families by providing access to resources that help reduce the income gap, including SparkPoint OC Financial Empowerment Centers, resume building, interview practicing sessions, affordable banking options and tips on improving credit scores.
