Day of Caring

WHAT IS THE DAY OF CARING?
The Day of Caring was conceived as a remembrance to those who lost their lives during the terrorist attack at September 11, 2001 and to honor the many heroes that evolved from the aftermath of that day. It has continued through the spirit of local volunteers and has grown into an annual tradition. Each year, approximately 1,000 volunteers have come together to lend a hand to local non-profits, schools, and government agencies. This day offers a unique opportunity to show your company's support for the community, engage your employees in volunteer events, and learn more about the impact of community agencies in Broome County!
