Day of Caring is the largest, single-day volunteer effort throughout Boulder & Broomfield counties. It is held on the Friday of the week of September 11 to align with the National 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance.
Volunteer Projects take place between 8:00 am and noon with a Volunteer Celebration beginning at 12:30 pm. Projects vary in size and scope and in most cases include physical labor.
Day of Caring provides an opportunity for local volunteers to get out into their communities, to learn about local nonprofit and government organizations and to give something back, all while having a great time. We welcome businesses & corporate teams, as well as community groups, families and individuals. However, all volunteers must be at least 18 years of age to participate.

In all, volunteers completed 49 different projects for 41 local organizations and contributed 3,780 hours of volunteer time. This volunteer time equates to an estimated economic value of $94,878 for our community.
