COVID-19 has no doubt made it harder to recruit and retain volunteers for your organization. Individuals and groups, however, see the need in their communities and are looking for ways they can help. DIY projects may be the perfect solution to providing a way for volunteers to work in their own space on their own time and provide much-needed resources for your constituents. How does it work? Simply post the items in need and volunteers sign up to purchase/collect supplies, package, complete an activity and drop-off. The projects are also fantastic ways for groups and families to serve! Search “DIY” on your local volunteer center’s website for ideas and opportunities to serve. See also below for a few great DIY kit ideas.
