Come together virtually to meet other volunteers while knitting or crocheting hats, scarves or mittens to donate to various non-profit agency partners. 

For this opportunity, volunteers are expected to have basic skills in knitting or crochet and must provide their own materials.  Interact and ask questions with other volunteers over video call for an engaging volunteer opportunity!

Want to let a nonprofit know that you are thinking of their staff and the people they serve? Write a letter or make a card and mail it to one of many agency partners.  




Follow the CDC guidelines and templates to make cloth masks for nonprofit partners. To make the sewn masks, volunteers will need cotton fabric, elastic, a needle and thread, a sewing maching, and scissors. There are also no sew mask options available for you to make and donate as well!




Help bring joy to someone's day by creating a video for a variety of agency partners! Creative videos of reading poetry, how-to's on crafts, or general well wishes are all welcome.
