campaign engagement day of caring volunteering and tours

Our Day of Caring® volunteer opportunities are a great way for you and your co-workers to team up and get involved in our community. These opportunities boost morale, promote team-building and promote your company’s visibility in the community. They also actively involve you in improving the community through direct assistance to a local organization.

Opportunities might include:

  • Painting
  • Sponsoring, preparing and serving meals
  • Special event assistance
  • Donation sorting
  • Outdoor gardening or landscaping
  • Touring an agency

How much time does it take?

  • There is flexibility, but generally a minimum of 2 hours, up to 8 hours, depending on the project.
  • Some projects may span multiple days, depending on their complexity.

How many people can participate?

  • Can accommodate 2 to 45 volunteers.

Do we need to leave the office?
Yes. Most are offsite, at community organization facilities or sites.

How far in advance can we book this activity?

  • A minimum 3 weeks of planning.  
  • Larger, more complex projects (such as painting or construction projects) may require more time to plan.

Can I choose the area of interest for the activity?
