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.
Day of Caring – SBC
Day of Caring-SBC kicks off with a pep rally breakfast hosted by Horseshoe Casino where volunteers and nonprofits enjoy live entertainment and yoga. Teams then depart to their work sites and projects usually last three to four hours. The day ends with an after-party where we celebrate our efforts and announce the award for Most Spirited.
Come join one of the largest volunteer events in Northwest Louisiana! The #DOC2019 event date will be released in early 2019.
