Testimonial:

For our company, it was a powerful bonding event. A diverse mix of folks from many levels of our company volunteered to work together with the common goal of helping needy people in our community. When manage-ment and people from all levels of the company worked side by side, hammering, digging, lifting, and mixing sweat for such a worthy cause, we felt a meaningful and rarely experienced way to connect. Together as a team we experienced the internal rewards of living our Christ's call to love and help our neighbor. I would encourage CEO's to embrace this as an effective and non-threatening way to lift up compassion as an appreciated workplace value

Care Projects:

Somebody Cares Tampa Bay aims to develop a contagious culture of caring within companies and organizations. One way we do that is by completing Care Projects. Care projects are homes of elderly, disabled, or single moms that are in violation of city code or have a need. We put together a care plan for each company and organization. The company then is able to meet the needs of the homeowner in a one day service event. When caring becomes contagious, the company is Caretagious.

In May 2015, Wells Fargo Advisors of Trinity adopted a home in New Port Richey. A team of 18 volunteers came together and painted a veterans home. Sanford, the homeowner, is 77 years old and is disabled with health issues. They went above and beyond the task of painting and also purchased the materials to paint his patio and sidewalk. They also included yard trim and rocks to beautify his flower beds and completed the makeover with hanging a USA flag on the side of the house in honor of his service. Wells Fargo also presented Somebody Cares Tampa Bay with a check in an effort to continue helping other homeowners in need. Way to go Wells Fargo Advisors of Trinity!! Thanks for being a "Caretagious" Business!
