day of caring
Day of Caring brings together local community members, businesses, non-profit organizations, schools, and local colleges and universities to take part in service back to the Harrisonburg and Rockingham County communities.
What an incredible day!
The community showed up in a big way on September 25th. We started the day with a Kickoff Breakfast and Keynote with community members and the entire senior class at Harrisonburg High School. We congratulated our Cllaborative Champion of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, and Top 20 Most Generous Workplaces. We heard words of inspiration from our Keynote speaker, Jermaine Jones. And then over 650 volunteers from local businesses and community groups gave their time to complete 95 projects in Harrisonburg and Rockingham County!
Our board chair, Keston Fulcher, committed to giving $1 for every volunteer at Day of Caring! He also challenged everyone at our Kickoff and Keynote to give as well. Whatever is meaningful to you, we hope you'll consider a gift too. Whether it is through your workplace campaign or here on our website, it all helps us to fulfill our mission of uniting our community to empower people in need.
Thank you for being a part of this incredible community. Thank you for believing in the work that we do to unite our community to empower people in need.
