Day of Caring
Day of Caring was conceived as a remembrance to those who lost their lives during the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001 and to honor the many heroes that evolved from the aftermath of that day. It has continued through the spirit of local volunteers and has grown into an annual tradition. Each year, nearly 1,000 volunteers come together to lend a hand to local non-profits, child care centers, parks and government agencies.
WHEN IS DAY OF CARING?
In celebration of our 100 year anniversary, we have EXPANDED to DAYS OF CARING 2018!
This year, the days of service will be September 14 and 15, 2018!

HOW DO I REGISTER TO VOLUNTEER ON DAY OF CARING?

We do our best to match large volunteer groups with available projects if you would like to stay together. You may also choose to submit applications for separate volunteer teams to impact more agencies or to accommodate your staffing and scheduling needs.
Please use this form to register your employee or civic volunteer group for the 2018 Days of Caring. If you would like to participate as an individual please use this form. If you have any questions, please contact Joni Kaiser.
CAN OUR GROUP REQUEST TO VOLUNTEER AT A SPECIFIC AGENCY?
During the registration process, you will have the ability to request your preferred project site. We make every effort to match volunteers with their preferred site, but cannot guarantee availability.
WHAT IF MY GROUP HAS PARTICULAR NEEDS OR LIMITATIONS?
You will have an opportunity to submit any additional information that we may need to help match you with the best project for your group in your registration forms.
WHAT DO WE NEED TO BRING?
Volunteer sites are able to provide lunch to volunteer groups (sites may or may not have other snacks and beverages available). In many cases, all materials needed for a project will be provided; however, depending on the project, you may be asked if you can bring extra tools if they are available (ie a shovel, a drill).
