Many projects are at the homes of local residents, especially seniors, who just can’t get the work done for one reason or another, whether it be their physical limitations or lack of resources. Past projects include installing hand and safety rails at homes, yard cleanup, trimming hedges, interior and exterior painting, and much more. Day of Caring helps these individuals stay in their houses, take pride and be happy in their homes and their lives.

Please note: Day of Caring worksites are geared toward minor repairs and projects that can be done in a day. We cannot do roofs, second-story exteriors, furnaces or large construction projects.

Day of Caring often assists local nonprofits with various jobs: painting, moving, office projects, helping area schools get ready for opening day, stuffing backpacks with donated school supplies, harvesting at community gardens, etc.

Spending time with senior citizens and people with special needs is another opportunity for service on Day of Caring.

Worksite requests must be received by July 14. Proposed projects will be reviewed and qualified by the Day of Caring Committee.
