BRC is aiming for 100 Volunteers from Boulder Rotary Club
! The Day of Caring is great for families and your employees or colleagues.
If BRC can get 100 volunteers, we will get our own BRC, United Way Day of Caring t-shirt, different than all the other volunteers that day.
To fund our BRC t-shirt, there are 14 logo spaces available for $300 each. Two spaces have been sold and two companies have committed to send 7-10 volunteers!
Day of Caring 2018 was our largest Day of Caring yet: 1,200 volunteers were able to complete 70 projects in 4,400 Volunteer Hours, providing over $117,000 in value to the community in a single day! Over the past 25 years, day of Caring has contributed over 60,000 volunteer hours and almost $1.5 million in value to our community’s nonprofit organizations.
ARE YOU IN ROOTS?
Roots joins the Friday lunch on the second Friday of each month, however in September that falls on the 13th which is the Day of Caring. Roots members are encouraged to sign up and help BRC reach the goal of 100 volunteers!
Sign up by filling out a volunteer registration at the Friday meeting or contact Michael McHale.
