Please join us for the Day of Caring on Friday, October 5th, 2018. Last year it was an inspirational day that brought together 1,600 volunteers completing 160 projects at 64 nonprofit agencies and schools in the community's largest volunteer event! Our 2018 Day of Caring will begin with a Kickoff Celebration at 8:30am at "The Green" at Town Square Las Vegas. We expect a much larger turnout this year as this year the Day of Caring is serving as 'the' community's engagement mechanism at the end of several 1 October anniversary events that week.
We all have stories to share. During this special edition of Fridays with Scott, Scott shares his story. Like us on Facebook to see a new blog from Scott on Fridays or catch up on blogs you may have missed on our website.
