Imagine what could happen if two dozen volunteers armed with spades, hoes and hammers descended upon a preschool’s yard. In a day’s time, that school could have a learning garden, the perfect vehicle for teaching nutrition, environmental awareness and a sense of responsibility. It’s not just a vision. It will happen on Day of Caring, September 26th.
Day of Caring is Central Florida’s largest community-based volunteer event. Businesses throughout the area send out teams of volunteers to work on specific projects aimed at bettering our community. Project needs fit some broad areas of interest. Gardening and landscaping projects are a great chance to spend a day outdoors. Creative thinkers can promote literacy through arts and crafts, while those who simply want to show they care can help serve the homeless. With dozens of projects to choose from, Central Florida corporations can easily put 2,000 volunteers out in the community September 26th. There are even projects available for individuals who want to participate.
