2016 marked the return of Day of Caring for the first time in eight years. After many partner agencies and community volunteers requested that we bring back this daylong volunteer event, we couldn't resist! Volunteers from area businesses donated a full day to volunteering at local nonprofit organizations to get some much-needed work done. Here's the breakdown of the awesome event on April 8:
-230 volunteers from 14 area businesses
-12 local nonprofit organizations
-25 projects completed
-With a volunteer hour valued at $21.31, an estimated $34,309.10 was donated in volunteers hours in a single day!
Thank you to our wonderful volunteers, partner businesses and partner nonprofit agencies for a successful day. And thank you to our sponsors Boone Hospital, Veterans United Foundation, Shakespeare's Pizza and Kilgore's Pharmacy.
