DAS Cares. For the healthcare community. For the WHOLE community.
Our team is proud to support various community projects and community service initiatives through DAS Cares, volunteering our time and energy to give a little back.
We’ve volunteered in communities across the United States, supporting causes our associates care about including working with Feeding America, Humane Society, Metropolitan Ministries, A Kid’s Place, and more!

In December, our Chicago team helped the Aurora Food Pantry provide nutritious food relief to the community in a humanitarian and compassionate manner. We helped sort through food donations received to ensure the people we served received fresh, high-quality food while reducing food waste by composting the sub-optimal produce with local farms. We also assisted in handing out food and loading cars while providing recipe ideas for food items our neighbors were unfamiliar with.

Our Columbus Team assembled and donated 100 Women’s Care Kits for the residents at Faith Mission Homeless Shelters. These kits are essential to those in need as they start down their new path. The Lutheran Social Services Network of Hope provides hope and healing for people in crisis, allowing them to overcome barriers to becoming self-sufficient.

We extended a helping hand to the Metropolitan Ministries in Tampa. Some of our team volunteered with the Environmental Services team to keep their campus clean by disinfecting surfaces, taking out the trash, and doing outdoor beautification and yard work. The rest of our team assisted at the Clothing Warehouse by processing and sorting donation; these donations are then sent to their community clients in need or to their Thrift Store to sell and fund their community programs.
Metropolitan Ministries offers comprehensive services for at-risk and homeless families in underserved and impoverished communities. In the last year, they’ve served 4,062,622 meals to hungry neighbors, provided safe shelter for children and their parents 56,944 nights, and helped 95,717 families through their family support centers in the last year.
