What goes on during Giving Day?
In addition to over 50 organizations present to talk about their activities/volunteer needs and receive community donations, there will be new attractions for families such as a stick horse rodeo and children’s activities coordinated by Boys and Girls Club. All attendees get a punch card and as they visit with booths about potential volunteer opportunities, they earn a free custard cone from Caliche’s. Attendees are also invited to bring canned food items for Casa de Peregrinos this year too.
