National Nonprofit Day, recognized in America on August 17, raises awareness of charitable contributions from nonprofit groups across the world.
The awareness day followed the 1894 Tariff Act that introduced the first federal tax exemptions for nonprofit organizations. Since its inception, National Nonprofit Day has continued to be a day to recognize and celebrate nonprofit volunteers, employees, and philanthropists in any form.
Heart2Heart Outreach has been mobilizing volunteers in South Florida to C.A.R.E. for the elderly since 2010, by partnering with local churches, foundations, businesses, people and care facilities, alike. C.A.R.E. is a spiritual, social, and emotional model of care, and it is intended to: provide hope, share love and restore purpose to the aging population.
C.A.R.E. is an acronym for: Connect, Advocate, Respond and Engage.
§ Connect - Churches to care, volunteers to the elderly, and hearts to hearts.
§ Advocate - On behalf of the aging population in the community.
§ Respond - To the spiritual/social/emotional support needs of residents in care centers.
§ Engage - Volunteers into building relationships with the aging community.
