Day of Caring


Volunteer registration for the 2017 event opens on August 30 at 8:00am.

The 25th Annual Day of Caring mobilized thousands of volunteers from all over the Cass & Clay communities to help area seniors and those in need with projects around their homes. The volunteer opportunities and activities vary greatly for the day-some individuals request help with light cleaning projects while some have larger requests for lawn care, cleaning gutters, pulling out flower beds/gardens. Volunteer as an individual or with a group! 

In 2016, 1,600 volunteers visited the homes of 470 local senior citizens for the afternoon.

SAVE THE DATE FOR 2017: October 12, 2017 will be the 26th Annual Event!
