United Way kicks off campaign with Spirit Week of Caring challenge

On Oct. 12, 2020, Livingston County United Way will celebrate the kick-off of campaign season with a Spirit Week-Caring Challenge. For an entire week, Oct. 12-16, LCUW will have activities planned to help spark joy throughout the community. The world is stressful and uncertain right now, and we could all benefit from a little laughter and the sense of fulfillment we feel when we show someone we care.

Monday, Oct. 12 – Activities Drive: Drop-off NEW activity books, coloring books, puzzles and craft-kits to LCUW-2980 Dorr Rd, Brighton, MI between 12pm-6pm. Items will be distributed to local older adults and individuals struggling with isolation.

Tuesday, Oct. 13 – Show off your school spirit by sporting your favorite schools’ colors (local, college, university), and writing a note/email to a school administrator, teacher, or staff member to show your appreciation!

Wednesday, Oct. 14 – Help spread kindness across Livingston County! Some ideas to get you started: Pay it Forward, recognize someone important to you on social media, write a friend a note, or leave a gift on someone’s porch!

Thursday, Oct. 15 -Have fun with it! Help spread laughter and smiles throughout the county! Silly pictures, funny costumes, the opportunities are endless!

Friday, Oct. 16 – Make a sign or share a throwback picture/video of you participating in a LCUW event to show us how you LIVE UNITED!
