What are Days of Impact events?

You are here

Days of Impact are corporate volunteer service events that occur twice each year and are coordinated by Hands On Asheville-Buncombe, the volunteer center of United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County.

Days of Impact mobilizes workforce volunteers to strengthen our community by matching groups with service projects focused on education, income and health goals that support the success of our community's students, families and neighbors.

Example projects include: 

  • Moving homeless into housing
  • Reading to students
  • Participating in a financial education simulation with students
  • & MORE!

While we anticipate partners will continue to offer some landscaping and painting projects, the majority of projects will directly or indirectly support the needs of students and clients.   

Spring 2018 Event: April 11-12, 2018!
