David Hegwood Day of Caring

28th Annual David Hegwood
Day of Caring
April 19th, 2024 
Day of Caring brings together volunteers committed to creating positive change in the lives of children, families, and individuals.
Volunteer teams, organized by local companies, civic organizations, schools, and community members complete projects for local nonprofit agencies, schools, and parks in the community that often lack the necessary resources to tackle such important initiatives themselves. We need YOU to make this day a success! 
The United Way of Southwest Oklahoma renamed the Day of Caring the David Hegwood Day of Caring in 2012 following David's passing. David was a long time board member and supporter of United Way.  David was a community advocate who believed strongly in volunteering and giving back to the community in which he lived. Every year we not only get to remember David and his commitment to United Way but we also remember his vision of giving back.  
Following a community breakfast, teams volunteer across Lawton to complete much-needed tasks such as painting, cleaning, landscaping, gardening, and construction.




We were able to complete

16 projects for 14 organizations.
