United Way Day Ideas:

  • Red Inspired Potluck Lunch: Invite your staff to participate in a red inspired potluck lunch! Staff to prepare dishes to meet over lunch and share. Recipes may include: red pepper dip, red velvet cupcakes, red potato salad, Spanish rice… visit Google and brainstorm some delicious red inspired recipes!
  • Red Office Decoration Challenge: Challenge staff to an office decoration contest – using the colour red! Balloons, banners, flags, tablecloths – go wild!
  • United Way Day Car Wash: Organize a staff car wash in your parking lot on United Way Day to show your support – no charge or, no charge for cars that are (you guessed it), RED!
  • Red Inspired BBQ: A great way for staff to come together and show support is to invite them to a red inspired barbecue. Make sure you have red plates, napkins and utensils – and don’t forget the ketchup!
  • Red Pancake Breakfast: Start United Way Day off right by inviting your staff to enjoy some delicious red pancakes (food dye is a magical thing) topped with strawberries.
  • Office Mini Golf: Have your staff show their support by engaging in office mini golf! Staff can make their own holes out of office supplies.
  • Red Balloon Surprise: At lunch have staff participate in popping red balloons to reveal a small prize inside!
  • Red Inspired Superhero’s: Ask staff to dress up as a superhero who wears red – Spiderman, The Flash and Super Woman (to name a few).
  • Red Inspired Bake Sale: Red velvet cupcakes, strawberry cheesecake, and red chocolate chip cookies are just some of many ideas for a red inspired bake sale! Ask staff to prepare and bring their dessert with all proceeds being donated to United Way.
  • Red Outfit Challenge: Challenge your staff to see who can wear the most red! Encourage them to be creative with accessories, face paint, and clothing.
