Day of Caring
DAY OF CARING IS FRIDAY, OCTOBER 10, 2014! WILL YOU JOIN US?
Day of Caring is a great opportunity to learn the needs of the community while helping a nonprofit agency or school!
In 2013, 1,352 volunteers, including individuals and employees from 95 companies, military commands, universities, and community service organizations, contributed a combined 8,100 hours of their time. These hours were equivalent to $191,456 in needed volunteer labor donated to 66 agencies and schools for a combined total of 110 projects. Additionally, volunteers unable to leave the office for “the day” conducted food drives, toy drives, book drives, and school supply drives throughout the month of October as their way of participating. The return on every $1 invested in Day of Caring equaled $11.26.
If you or your company would like to participate in this year's Day of Caring, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Lyndi Smith Warner at 850.444.7128.
