ON-SITE SERVICE PROJECTS
Can't leave the office but still want to volunteer? Create a volunteer project in the office. Many of our community partners do not have sufficient funds to purchase crucial material goods needed for their clients. Community and corporate volunteers can collect donations or purchase goods to assemble supply kits as an inspiring team-building activity, while bringing tangible comfort and encouragement to those in need.
