Volunteers needed to sort items and pack suitcases and backpacks and then deliver donations to local domestic violence shelters.
Due to the rapidly changing COVID landscape, all volunteers will be required to register in advance and provide proof of vaccine. No walk-in volunteers will be admitted. If you are unable to volunteer in person but would still like to participate, you can pack dignity bags and make fleece blankets at home. Click here for instructions.
