Caretagious Company

Somebody Cares Tampa Bay aims to develop a contagious culture of caring within companies and organizations. One way we do that is by coordinating Care Projects. Care Projects are homes of elderly, disabled, or struggling families that demonstrate a need or are in violation of city code.

Care Projects can have a powerful impact on your company!

  • Creates a fun, team-building experience
  • Develops a culture of caring within your company or organization 
  • Builds morale within the workplace 
  • Develops good will through community beautification 
  • Your company is promoted on our websites and in our media as a Caretagious Company 
  • Your company is promoted to our email list, including your company information and picture of your team serving as one of our Caretagious companies for the month 
  • Event is documented with photographs for each team member and your company  
  • Your company receives recognition at our public events as a Caretagious company 
  • Your company is eligable to be recognized as our Caretagious Company of the Year.

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.

Cost:

We believe in partnering for success and providing value by coordinating an easy and enjoyable experience for your company and employees. We plan and equip your company with the tools necessary to bless a homeowner. Your organization can simply adopt a project and provide some of the supplies to complete the project (paint, etc.). Or, your organization can become an official "Caretagious Company" and receive all the benefits, including being actively promoted in the community throughout the year!

How to become an official Caregatious Company:

With only a $500 tax-deductable donation to Somebody Cares Tampa Bay (SCTB), your organization can adopt the project of your choice. Some projects do require additional supplies to be donated by the adopting team, such as lumber for a wheelchair ramp. Incidental supplies and tools, as well as refreshments and lunch for your whole team on your Care Project day, are provided by SCTB. 

Testimonials:

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 management and people from all levels of the company worked side by side, hammering, digging, lifting, and mixing sweat for such a worthy cause, it becomes a meaningful experience. Together, as a team, we experienced the internal rewards of living our Christ’s call to love and help our neighbor. I would encourage CEOs to embrace this as an effective and non-threatening way to lift up compassion as an appreciated workplace value.

 “Our office thoroughly enjoyed the experience of working together to provide some happiness to a veteran. At the end of the day, we were tired but we felt great that we had done a little something to make it a better world for just one more person. We are looking forward to the next one.”

 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!
