Week of Caring
Do you have a facility that needs painting, clothing or food supplies that need sorting, gardens around your agency in need of sprucing up or other large projects on your agency wish list? By participating in Week of Caring your nonprofit can take advantage of committed, high-quality corporate volunteers. Each year, Week of Caring connects volunteers from Bay Area businesses to hundreds of projects organized by local nonprofits.
