What is Days of Caring?
Days of Caring connects volunteers with local nonprofit groups to complete projects that may not otherwise get done.
Projects range from painting a mural to building a playground, reading to preschoolers or sponsoring a seniors project.
This unique event gives employees an opportunity to spend their workday or a Saturday on volunteer projects that make a difference in the lives of children, family and seniors.
Days of Caring also provides a way for companies and groups to develop long-lasting relationships with colleagues and agencies.
