Boyer Participates in "Day of Caring" 2015

Thank you to United Way of King County and our fantastic team of volunteers from Microsoft!

One day each year, United Way of King County organizes 10,000+ volunteers to execute projects at non-profits throughout the region. This year’s Day of Caring saw a record 12,000 volunteers who completed 500 projects. We were honored to be on United Way’s list of organizations in need of care, and we are grateful!

On Friday, September 18, thirteen Microsoft employees, led by Boyer Alumni Parent, Kevin Rio, showed up to our space at 9:30am, ready to work, and didn’t leave until after 6pm! The team washed windows, stripped and stained the playground fence, and cut arts and crafts projects for classrooms.

“It was an incredible day and it was an honor to be part of both Day of Caring and support an organization that means so much to my wife and I,” Kevin Rio states. “I am so appreciative of the support Microsoft provides for its employees to be part of this day.”

United Way of King County is a long-time community partner of Boyer. In addition to Day of Caring, United Way of King County recently awarded Boyer with a $50,000 grant to support our early intervention services that help young children meet developmental milestones. Through this investment, United Way of King County demonstrates their commitment to giving kids an equal chance, especially for children with disabilities and developmental delays. We are grateful for their continued partnership in our community!
