The United Way of Southwest Alabama (UWSWA) will hold its 28th Annual Day of Caring, one of the region’s largest single day of volunteerism on May 6, 2022

UWSWA invites organizations to volunteer and leave a mark on someone’s heart. Day of Caring volunteers see first-hand how their support makes a difference as they paint and make repairs, plant trees and ready gardens for planting, sort food donations, and help our agencies complete projects they do not have the time or resources to do throughout the year. Volunteers also have the opportunity to hear the stories of those whose lives have been impacted because of the agencies funded by UWSWA.

Once again, this year, participating teams have the option of doing a virtual or in-person project.

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama participates in DOC every year and has for at least 20 years.

  • Give back to the community – healthier Community Safety-Net
  • See firsthand the work UWSWA partner agencies are impacting lives in our community
  • Stronger, more connected teams
  • Happier, healthier staff


We know your company cares about the community. You demonstrate it each year through the giving of your time, talents, and treasures. And for that, we are thankful. Without your help, many in our community would not receive the hand up they need to get back on steady ground. Without your help, many of our partners could not continue providing the level of services that our community needs to thrive. Without your help, our annual Day of Caring could not happen!
