Cardinal at Work Cares

Cardinal at Work Cares logo

Stanford employees embody our spirit of service and giving. We lend a hand to our communities, volunteer to help patients, students, and visitors on our campuses, and come together to donate items, time, and energy for the benefit of others. Cardinal at Work Cares helps to organize and identify opportunities for individual employees and for teams or groups of employees to serve together.

2017 Cardinal at Work Cares Giving Campaign

The 2016 giving campaign was incredible, and this fall, we'll try to top last year's results! From November 1 to December 1, we'll collect donated personal care items across all buildings and departments at Stanford, and write personal notes of encouragement. On December 5 (on campus) and December 7 (Porter Drive), we'll pack the care items and notes into special gift bags for delivery to area charities. Personal care items desired are brand new, individual sized toothpaste, shampoo, along with bar soap, toothbrushes, handi wipes, and diapers. More details coming soon!

Please Share Your Ideas for 2018 Cardinal at Work Cares Activities

We'd like to plan regular activities throughout 2018, and want to hear what types of activities you want to support. Share your ideas with us.

Volunteering Supports Your Wellness

When you give to others, you enrich your life by increasing happiness, fostering collaboration and social connections, and more. Our BeWell Program recognizes the value of volunteering with a BeWell Berry for employees, not just for Cardinal at Work Cares activities, but for any volunteering you do. Visit the BeWell website to view program details and download the BeWell volunteer form.

Cardinal at Work Ambassadors: Would You be One?

We're big and we're decentralized, so it's critical for school, unit, and departmental advocates to help promote and organize volunteer activities with employees. In return, Ambassadors get cool swag, recognition, the opportunity to build valuable leadership skills, and increase your ability to meet new people and forge connections with others outside of your department. Ready to jump in? Let us know and we'll add you to our Ambassador team.
