Day of Caring

Calling all corporate volunteers! Friday, October 12, 2018, is our annual Day of Caring; a day when volunteers in DeSoto, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pinellas and Sarasota Counties come together to help community agencies, schools and other organizations in need of help. From weeding and planting at a neighborhood school, to scrubbing and painting the walls at a daycare, conducting mock interviews for low-income job seekers or helping to put together a resume; you and your team can help us build a better Suncoast region.

Last year’s event included 42 companies and 2224 volunteers who completed service projects across a 5-county region; projects the sites might not have the staff, time or resources to handle without these volunteer efforts, resulting in $229,547.26 in added value back to the community. To sign up for this year’s Day of Caring, or for more information, please email DayofCaring@uwsuncoast.org. And, for information on other corporate volunteer opportunities, please contact Nicholas Castro, Director Volunteer Engagement Strategies, at ncastro@uwsuncoast.org or 813-274-0932.
