On June 26, 2017 the Young Professionals of Kamloops Rotaract participated in a Day of Caring® at a local senior’s home and cleaned up her yard.

The senior had not been able to maintain her yard for a while, resulting in it becoming overgrown and unmanagable. Graham Dick, David Becker, and Trent Thompson got started right away and had the entire yard finished within 3 hours. The atmosphere was light and fun with little Myla the puppy supervising the progress of the lawn mowing, weed pulling and clearing of the resulting plant debris.

The Young Professionals of Kamloops Rotaract are dedicated to seeing positive change in our community and this is a prime example.

Thank you for all of your hard work, the difference of a few hours is incredible!


With nearly 700 volunteers putting in over 3450 volunteer hours in less than three years, a lot of work, learning, and connecting is getting done at United Way Days of Caring®

The idea is simple. An organization has a project that has been sitting on the backburner like a new fence or a space painted, and a local business has a team of eager volunteers ready to get the job done. But it’s not just about the fence. It’s about building a sense of caring through volunteerism and connecting people with different skills, knowledge, and backgrounds. It’s about team-building and having the chance to learn about the programs available in our community that United Way supports.
