Day of Caring

The 25th Day of Caring was an incredible success!

Thank you to nearly 300 amazing volunteers who completed projects at 37 nonprofits, saving them over $25,000 in labor costs!!!

The volunteer teams that were scattered across Routt County took part in weeding, gardening, painting, picking up trash and completing other important and helpful tasks.

Here’s what participants are saying about the 2022 Day of Caring:

Thank you, Kate!! Your team always does such a great job!!! Thank you for the opportunity to sponsor this awesome event. I am always impressed with the participation and scope of what we can accomplish.

• Zach Chelburg, Bank of the San Juans

I just want to extend a big THANK YOU for all your help at the shelter yesterday!! We have been hard at work making updates, so this is a comfortable home for those fleeing violence, and we made huge strides yesterday thanks to your support!

• With gratitude, Chelsie, and the Advocates Team

We really enjoyed helping at LiftUp!  Thanks so much for spearheading this important event.

• Deana Von Almen, Yampa Valley Bank

I just wanted to say thank you so much on behalf of Discovery Learning Center. Our volunteers from the Steamboat Pilot were super. They all came in their bright red shirts and really worked hard cleaning all our windows before our “graduations”! Everyone has commented on what a great job they did, and they did it with a smile! The children were so curious about everything. It was awesome! What a beautiful day as well. How blessed are we to live in such a wonderful place with such a caring community.

Again, thank you for your organization.

• Lynn Romeo, Discovery Learning Center

Afterward, Volunteers celebrated at the Howelsen Hill Gazebo where Gary Suiter, Steamboat Springs City Manager, provided a warm welcome and thanked the volunteers for giving their valuable time to the community.

Everyone enjoyed a complimentary lunch, thanks to Ski Town Lion’s Club!!! And we want to extend a big thank you to the Bank of the San Juans, for their generous support of our annual and beloved Day of Caring.

Hope to see everyone back in 2023!
