Albany- Britt Bazemore knows what it's like to spend a day in the shoes of a YMCA day-camp counselor.
Passing foam footballs from camper to camper, Bazemore was a Suntrust volunteer for United Way's Corporate Day of Caring.
"Kind of help them play the games and they get to make new friends and everything else," said Bazemore,
Suntrust employees helped with almost every kind of game during one of the last days of summer vacation for most of these kids.
"Ya know, last day of camp," he said. "Getting ready to go back to school and everything else. So come out and support them and help them have fun."
While they helped run the fun for the crowd full of kids, Phoebe Putney people put in a few hours at the Salvation Army.
"The beds and digging, and we had the tiller," said Caree Elder, a Phoebe employee. "We had dirt hauling in here. Just sprucing up the place."
Sprucing up the place because this is a place that is important to the community. Eight companies provided more than 50 volunteers for Thursday's event.
The Day of Caring is about finding ways for people who live in the community to give back. Employees from Darton College helped with Meals on Wheels, while Ivan Allen employees bathed and groomed dogs at the Albany Humane Society.
"We wouldn't be able to exist if it wasn't for the surrounding community supporting Suntrust," Bazemore said.
The community wouldn't exist either if it wasn't for volunteers like him.
