Corporate Caring Volunteer Week – Nonprofit Partners

litaanimalgroup

Corporate Caring Volunteer Week is an annual week of service where committed, high-quality corporate volunteers from many Bay Area businesses are matched with local non-profits to complete short-term projects.  Nonprofit organizations submit projects ideas that are often on the organization’s “wish list” and range from preparing client care packages and food baskets refreshing landscaping, painting, or helping move furniture to create more client-centered spaces.

This year, Corporate Caring Volunteer Week is September 18-23, 2017.
