The Dubuque YP Days of Caring team is looking for ways we can make a difference!


Through Dubuque YP Days of Caring, we will provide the needed assistance to help area charities & organizations and their clients complete service projects that they may not be able to accomplish on their own.

Projects can include anything from landscaping, simple construction, yard clean up, clerical assistance, painting, staining, washing windows, and house cleaning, to visiting elderly residents or helping with a program for children…whatever is important and can be accomplished in a day.

Our goal is to gather enough volunteers to complete all service project requests; however, if for any reason we are not able to accept a project this year, it will remain on a wish list for future Days of Caring events.

If you have additional questions or want to nominate a project contact or call us at 563.557.9200.
