Project Helping organizes volunteer events specifically designed to make an impact — both on you and your community. Through volunteering, you can actively invest in your communities while also reaping the benefits of increased mental wellness. We create opportunities for you to practice kyndfulness!
WHAT WILL WE BE DOING?
We will be creating dignity bags for you to take, and give to someone who is experiencing homelessness. The kit will only take between 30-45 minutes to make. Already in the kit will be: socks, deodorant, tooth paste, tooth brush, chapstick, and soap.
