This year, our annual Day of Caring will focus on one thing - children. And your support is needed. We will be collecting a wide variety of school supplies on Thursday, July 22, 2021 for our agency partner, The Salvation Army, to distribute to children in need at their Back to School Supply Bash! Donating is easy. Just put your donation in your trunk, stop by one of the 4 drive-up location sites listed below during the times provided, and our volunteers will remove your donation from your trunk.
