More donations on the August 28 Day of Caring means more help directly to our neighbors and community. If you want to get your organization's employees involved, here's how you can do so:

  • Encourage employees to donate food at one of the 15 sites
  • Share details by including this webpage and the food drive flyer
  • Encourage employees to register to give blood at one of the available sites
  • Notify employees that they will receive important information on civic engagement

If you would like to have your organization recognized for your involvement in the August 28 Day of Caring, please encourage your employees to share your organization's name when they drop off their food donations. Volunteers will record this information so we can recognize all participating organizations.
