Day of Caring
DAY OF CARING date for 2015 will be announced in January!
Day of Caring traditionally has taken place on the 2nd Friday in October. We will announce the 2015 date in January. This one day event is a great opportunity to learn about the needs of the community while helping a nonprofit agency or school. We match groups and individuals with local non-profit agencies and schools to spend the day volunteering on projects. The work is varied: indoors or outdoors, half or full day, working directly with clients, hosting a collection drive, or lending your muscles for painting or landscaping projects
Check out the condensed Day of Caring Satisfaction Survey Report from the 2014 participants.
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 Warner at 850.444.7128.
