United Way Suncoast and United Way of Manatee County's Annual Day of Caring Thursday, October 6th, 2015 VOLUNTEERS COME TOGETHER AS ONE FOR DAY OF CARING. For the past 22 years, United Way Suncoast Day of Caring has joined caring community members with community agencies, schools and other organizations that need them. Last year, 172 projects were completed from over 120 corporate teams and organizations across DeSoto, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pinellas and Sarasota Counties. These corporate volunteers were able to add a value $357,905* back to the community. Day of Caring 2016 will once again take place in the following five counties: DeSoto, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pinellas and Sarasota Counties. This year will bring you and your volunteer team together with projects most agencies could never undertake on their own. From weeding and planting at a neighborhood school, to scrubbing and painting the walls at a daycare or conducting mock interviews for low-income job seekers to resume building; whatever you and your teams choose, you and your team can be the architects that help us build a better Suncoast Region. *The Independent Sector, a leadership forum for charities, foundations and corporate giving programs, calculated the value of a volunteer in 2015 at $23.56 per hour. Even if you cannot participate on October 6th this year, you can make everyday a Day of Caring by visiting www.volunteersuncoast.org or call Nicholas Castro, Director, Volunteer Engagement Strategies for United Way HandsOn Suncoast at (813) 274-0932 for more information.
