Day of Caring

doc2015Day of Caring is a one day, community-wide volunteer event that allows companies and organizations an opportunity to see their contributions at work! Learn more about the health and human service needs in Northwest Louisiana. This event connects local business and industry with nonprofits and over 500 volunteers from more than 45 area businesses and organizations participate in this event.

The 2017 Day of Caring is scheduled for Friday, May 12 and our host sponsor is Horseshoe Casino. The day begins with a pep rally breakfast at 8:30am. Each company team then departs to its assigned nonprofit organization for their specific project(s). Typical projects include painting, landscaping, clerical work, sorting food and clothing and cleaning. Projects take between three to four hours to complete and the day ends with an after-party celebration event back at Horseshoe Casino.
