Volunteer Opportunities and Kids' Volunteer Toolkit
HOST A FUNDRAISER
Help us raise money for the homeless and at-risk families that don’t have a warm bed to sleep in at night, sufficient food and water and basic household necessities. Make it a group activity with your friends, family, classmates or colleagues.
Pick a fundraiser that works for you. Remember to consider how many people are involved and their ages, when and where you want to hold the fundraiser, how much time and resources you have and what group of people you are targeting for donations.
