What is 5.18 Day?

5.18 day is the single largest day of community impact in the Capital Region. On Saturday, May 18, volunteers will fan out to more than 40 local nonprofits to complete service projects. Afterwards volunteers will meet back at the Washington Park Lake House to celebrate all their hardwork! 

Get Involved!

UnitedToVolunteer.org is an easy to navigate website where you can search for volunteer opportunities by date, type of project or agency.  It also allows the user to track their hours. It will be the way to sign-up for a 5.18 Day project.

"Stuff the CDTA Bus With Books" 

For 5.18 Day, help us reach our goal of 10,000 Books to stuff the CDTA bus! We are collecting new/gently used books to distribute to our partners working in early childhood literacy. No books, no problem! Shop our Amazon Wish Wish List and have the books shipped directly to United Way GCR or make a donation and we will do the shopping for you!
