Care Squares

In this virtual volunteering project, Synchrony colleagues from the U.S., India and the Philippines will crochet squares that will be made into blankets by seniors and donated to non-profits. No crochet experience necessary – the session will include “how to” instruction and all materials will be mailed to your home prior to the session.

December 14th | 1:00 – 2:00 PM EST

EVENT DETAILS

IMPACT

We're providing warmth to those in need

About the cause: For most of us, winter means holidays, family gatherings, and gift-giving. But for people experiencing homelessness, winter is a brutal challenge. The cold weather makes life on the streets even more dangerous than usual, and a societal focus on togetherness and holiday cheer can create a sense of even greater isolation. WeHero and nonprofits are working hard to help provide solutions.

About the event: Learn about the challenges experienced by individuals who are houseless and crochet a 7″ x 9″ rectangle to be a part of something bigger – blankets for those in need! These squares will be coming from Synchrony teams across the globe to make blankets of care.

Join us for this virtual event as we learn about the cause, make an impact, and connect over a fun activity at home!

OFFSET YOUR LIFE

IMPACT

Offsetting your carbon takes less than 2 minutes

CarbonHero was created to make living a net-zero life easy and accessible for all!

Our mission has always been to remove the friction for companies and individuals so they can give back to worthwhile causes without any hassle. We immediately recognized the need for a solution that easily calculated our carbon footprint and allowed us to offset it on an ongoing basis.

CARE FOR OUR PLANET

Be a Waste Warrior

We build our volunteer events to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Whether it is offsetting the carbon emissions of the shipping process, using recycled cardboard for the boxes, or relying on algae-based dyes, we’ve made conscious steps to ensure we’re doing right for our world.

However, it’s impossible for us to completely eliminate waste products from the experience. To ensure we limit the impact of these materials, we ask that all participants properly recycle and dispose of the materials they receive.

Recycling is hard so we made this resource list to make it easier!
