September 11th has been designated a national day of service. The United Way has since designated every September 11th to hold their “Day of Caring”. DTC has participated in the Fall Day of Caring since its inception.
Day of Caring is an event where volunteers from around the region join local nonprofit agencies to work on one-time service projects. Participating nonprofit agencies host volunteers from the community and local businesses who choose to give their time and services in an effort to impact our communities’ needs.
Last year DTC worked with the Friends of Albacore park and cleaned up the grounds, ship and museum of the Albacore Park Museum in Portsmouth NH. This year DTC worked with Growing Places at their Lee, NH facility. DTC team members along with staff from the Sheraton Hotel, helped clean up the grounds, revamp playground equipment, interior and exterior painting and staining new/used furniture.
