Join us as we give back to our community through our annual Day of Caring, with a social distance twist!

This year, participants are still encouraged to spend the day volunteering, but with social distance etiquette in mind. Those volunteering are encouraged to limit the number of people in groups, wear masks, keep 6 feet apart, or volunteer from home.

Participants can also give back through the purchase of a 2020 T-shirt to commemorate the event and raise funds for our annual campaign. Deadline to order t-shirts is September 3rd with pickup at the BRUW office September 21st – 24th.
