Days of Caring

Days of Caring is a community-wide effort to showcase volunteerism on a larger scale.
Local groups, such as businesses, churches, and schools, as well as individuals and families, dedicate a day or even half-day to volunteer in their community. This year, volunteers will work together in one neighborhood. Imagine the result!
