DIY Volunteer Projects from PathForward:

Participate in the Homeless Bagged Meal Program by preparing enough meals to serve 50 people and dropping them off at PathForward.
When one of PathForward's clients moves into a new home (yay!!), PathForward provides a House Warming Gift Basket you can make at home!

DIY Volunteer Projects from AWLA:

Find fun (and essential) items for dogs and cats by going on a scavenger hunt at local (or online) pet stores!  AWLA's Animal Control Officers (ACOs) keep a supply in their vehicles to give to members of the community whose pets can benefit from them because sometimes all it takes is some peanut butter and a Kong to keep a barking dog from being surrendered to the shelter. Many of these kits go to animals that have never had toys or treats before, not because their loving owners wouldn't like to, but because of financial barriers. There is no greater joy than watching kids throw a ball for their dog for the first time!  Download the flyer here.

DIY Volunteer Projects from Bridges to Independence:

Bridges to Independence has several DIY opportunities to support families experiencing homelessness.
