What is Corporate Caring Volunteer Week?

“Each September, the Contra Costa Crisis Center, with presenting sponsor Chevron, offers Corporate Caring Volunteer Week, the largest corporate volunteer program in the Bay Area. This week-long event brings thousands of employees from local companies together to volunteer at East Bay nonprofits. Corporate Caring Volunteer Week provides an easy and unique way for corporations to strengthen their community involvement and elevate their status as corporate leaders.”

This year, St. Vincent de Paul of Contra Costa County was fortunate to have volunteers from Dow Chemical, YapStone, and Mechanics Bank help out in our thrift stores and Family Resource Center.

We are so grateful for the time that these corporate volunteers have put in to help in sorting our donated goods and packaging our newsletters!
