Volunteer Over the Summer

We have volunteer opportunities at both a public library and a public elementary school. Choose the date(s) and location(s) that work best for you!

Choose one or choose them all! We’d love to have your help preparing for the new school year.

Prep classroom materials

We are helping kindergarten and first grade. Sample projects:

Bananagrams – Make sure each set has correct tiles and bananas in good shape.

Geometric shapes – Make sure each bag has one of each shape and replace bag, if needed.

Assemble and staple – wordbooks, spelling pads, dot-to-dots, and more.
