July Volunteer Opportunities

School's Out!

Summer is an exciting time in every child's year. Make it one to remember by sponsoring a field trip for children living in our homeless shelters! Help keep their minds sharp by hosting a trip to an educational landmark like the Statue of Liberty or a museum. An afternoon in the park is also a crowd-pleaser!

Participate in Operation Backpack®

You don't have to wait until August to participate in our Sort Week(s). The public Operation Backpack® drive runs July 9-August 3. During this time, hold a drive at your organization with your co-workers to collect supplies and fill up new backpacks for children living in homeless and domestic violence shelters across the city. At the office, you can pack the backpacks with the supplies you collect and write encouraging notes to the children wishing them luck on their first day of school. It's a great Summer Friday or lunchtime activity! Groups that donate at least 100 full backpacks may be eligible for a FedEx pickup to transport to our sort space at no charge.

For details on how to get involved, please contact Andrew Zibell for more information.
