The Mission of United Way of Posey County:

To provide visionary leadership to assess community needs, mobilize resources, and direct those resources toward services which enhance quality of life for people living in Posey County.


United Way of Posey County’s Day of Caring is the largest, coordinated volunteer service event in the county providing non-profit organizations and the community within Posey County the hands-on help and resources needed to further their missions. It’s a wonderful event that connects local businesses and community members with non-profit agencies and organizations to complete needed work, and an opportunity to give back. The date has been set for September 27, 2024.

Approximately 350 volunteers are expected to fan out across the community to complete 50+ projects and to make a positive difference in Posey County. Various volunteer projects will be completed, including landscaping, painting, restoration projects, and more. Volunteers of all ages and skill levels can participate.

Do you love to mow, paint, landscape, etc. and prefer to work alone? You can do that and help someone in the community at the same time! Or volunteer alongside friends, family, or colleagues and make it a special experience. Have fun and make a positive difference in our community by serving together.

Advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help all of us. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy.

United Way’s goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of these problems. Living united means being a part of the change. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future. Give. Advocate. Volunteer. LIVE UNITED.
