Day of Caring

Day of Caring is a one-day, community-wide event that allows corporate and nonprofit volunteers the opportunity to see their contributions at work. This annual event connects nearly 700 people with nonprofits in the Shreveport-Bossier and Minden areas, giving them the chance to learn more about the health and human service needs in their communities. Teams of volunteers tackle things like painting, landscaping, clerical work, cleaning, and sorting food and donations. Annually, Day of Caring saves our nonprofit partners thousands in labor costs as volunteers undertake projects that improve their community.
