Help available for non-profits!

The Day of Caring program matches local non-profit organizations with volunteers from community-minded businesses to complete short-term projects. In 2015, over 1,500 volunteers contributed 5,600 hours to 140 hands-on volunteer projects in Winnipeg.

Whether it’s refreshing an indoor or outdoor space, helping out with a fundraiser or AGM, or hosting a special event for the individuals and families you serve, local workplaces are eager to pitch in and lend a hand.
