Spend a few hours sorting clothes or help pack a box for a local child in need! Volunteer as an individual or bring a group. Volunteers must be 18 years old or accompanied by a parent/guardian. Children 10 and older are welcome with a parent.
Help us deliver Boxes of Basics! All deliveries will be dropped off to one of our referring partners which is normally a school, government or community agency. We do not deliver directly to families. By signing up you agree to pick up boxes from our headquarters in Manassas, VA.
Hold a community collection of new socks and underwear, winter coats, new shoes or organize your own clothing drive!
Ambassadors are volunteers who manage communication between Boxes of Basics and their specific neighborhood, church, school, company or organization. Ambassadors activate their micro-community and spread the word for Boxes of Basics by:
(1) Sharing social media posts to their community
(2) Posting opportunities to donate clothing or volunteer
(3) Hosting a clothing/shoe/sock/underwear or jacket drive
(4) Answering questions about Boxes of Basics
(5) Engaging their community
We are currently accepting Boxes of Basics Ambassadors in Prince William County.
Boxes of Basics will follow the Prince William County School decisions in the case of inclement weather. If Prince William County Schools are delayed OR cancelled, then all volunteer shifts and Boxes of Basics activities are cancelled for the entire day.
Volunteers and staff should always use their best judgement and put their personal safety first in instances of inclement weather.
Children who would like to volunteer to pack Boxes of Basics and sort clothing must be at least 10 years old and must be accompanied by an adult the entire shift.
Ambassadors must be 18 or older. Children under the age of 18 are allowed to work with their parent/adult as an ambassador team.
We love having groups volunteer with us! From scout troops and church groups to families and businesses we are happy to schedule a specific shift just for your group. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your group.
