How to participate in KFAD 2012?

Check out our online calendar of events HERE.   Find a project listed on the day of the event and sign up using the web portal.  It is important to sign up in advance as many of our preparations require an accurate count of volunteers.  Your information will be kept confidential and RochesterCares never shares any of their volunteer data with other sources.

What is the “King For A Day” Celebration of Service (KFAD ’12)?

RochesterCares invites you to participate in the city’s largest volunteer event that honors the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  Join hundreds of volunteers in citywide service projects as we build a better Rochester. Educate students on diversity through crafts and readings, sort donated goods and register voters, engage senior citizens in life story discussions and other impactful activities that pay tribute to Dr. King’s call to serve our local communities.

Why RochesterCares is the city’s premier volunteer service organization!

RochesterCares builds stronger communities in Rochester through volunteerism. We work closely with community leaders to identify and research critical needs of the non-profit organizations in our area. We then develop targeted volunteer programs and mobilize thousands of volunteers to address those needs. This is accomplished by developing leadership in this area that continues to serve and make things happen for Rochester. We inspire people to give of their time and energy, creating a real sense of community and responsibility. Since 2001, RochesterCares has activated more than 5,000 volunteers who have dedicated more than 100,000 hours of service to our city.
