Day of Caring


Day of Caring is a meal packaging event for the communities we serve. Together over 250 volunteers in Western Nebraska come together for two events to package 80,000 meals to assist with hunger relief in our area.  The Scotts Bluff Area packages 60,000 meals and the Box Butte & Dawes Counties package 20,000 meals.  Volunteers package shelf-stable, fortified Mac & Cheese and Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal bulk food products.   All the meals remain in the community for food insecure familes, children and seniors.  To volunteer please click on the volunteer registration form for the area you are interested in.  Call the United Way office at 635-2522 for Scotts Bluff Area inquries and questions and 763-8031 for Box Butte & Dawes Counties information.
