Find a project to do

This is where we pull our DFW community together to volunteer so that we can successfully help people in need. We are a nonprofit organization that works solely through volunteers with NO paid employees.  We need your help!

 

Apartment Setup Volunteer

We are assigned an apartment for setup and must complete the setup between 2 and 4 days of receiving the assignment. The nonprofits we work with do not get much advance notice, and neither do we.  We send out volunteer opportunities to our interested constituency via email and request individuals respond to the opportunities when their schedule lines up with the particular opportunity.

Process Donated Goods

We often receive donations that can be used with a little bit of cleaning or repair. Join this list to receive processing assigments as we receive them. This is a great at home project.

Make a Twin Quilt

We need a great many more twin quilts than Queen or Full quilts. While we need both, we are encouraging volunteers to make twins since we have many more children and single people to supply than married couples. We cna also use cute toddler bed and crib sized covers. This is a great at home project. 

Purse Kit

Many of the women come without a purse or handbag. Dig out one of your old ones or collect some from friends and make a purse kit that has many of the necessities we like to carry already in them for us to give away. This is a great at home project. 

Diaper Bag Kit

Load a diaper bag with all the things a mom needs for her baby. This is a great at home project.

Backpack Kit

Stuff a gently used or new backpack with supplies that students need. This is a great at home project.

Make First Aid Kits

Buy Bandaids and other first aid needs and sort them into ziplock bags.This is a great at home project. 

Make mending kits

Imagine having very few clothes and no money to mend them with! This is a great at home project.

Make Home Essential Kit

Think of items you might keep in a kitchen junk drawer. Examples are tape, clothes pins, nails, screws, pens, pencils, paper clips, flashlight, wire, glue, pliers, hammer, screwdrives, batteries, clothesline rope, and chalk. Make one or many!

Hold a Consumables Collection

Hold a consumables drive to collect items such as dish soap, bathroom cleaner, hand soap, toilette paper, tissues, kitchen trash bags, ziplock bags, sponges, disposable razers, etc.

Hanger Collection

This project is expecially for families with young children. We need hangers of all sizes sorted into like kinds and shapes and bound together with rubber bands or tape in sets of 20. These hangers can be either wire or plastic but need to be grouped with like kinds. This is also a great home project.

Make and Donate Mops

This is your opportunity to put some of those old stained, bleached, or otherwise damaged bath towels to good use. Collect bathtowels that are more than gently used. Cut them in half (making two squares, not rectangels) and cut a small hole in the center of the square towel. Fold the square and put it in a gallon ziplock bag along with the instructions printed from this link.

Student Assistance Request Booklet

Coming to a new school and not knowing the language can be very challenging. This little booklet that can be given to non-english speakers can help them navigate their first days. Follow this link to a google document you can print to make these booklets.
