We love when young people want to help and believe in teaching children the importance of giving back and helping others. We have designed a variety of volunteer projects specifically for our younger supporters.
Maybe you are in a scout troop, church youth group or just want your kids to have the opportunity to help. Although they are a little too young to help us sort and pack in the warehouse, kids can make a difference and we would love to get them involved!
Each season we pick a day and invite all of our future volunteers to visit the Boxes of Basics warehouse to see first-hand how their contributions have helped other kids right in their own community!
Teaching children to give back and help others begins at home. Go through your child's outgrown clothing and put together everything we need for a Box of Basics! This is a great project that parents and kids can work on together in the comfort of your own home. This is a great project for a group or an individual family!
Work with your kids or group to plan and host a donation drive. From collecting gently used children's clothing from their friends, winter coats from a sports team or coordinating a large collection effort at your school, donation drives are critical to Boxes of Basics. The more quality clothing we have, the more children we can help. Want to take it one step further? Host a sorting party at the end of the drive!
Each Box of Basics contains a handwritten note from a volunteer. Let your child or youth group get creative and design cards of positivity we can include in each box. Maybe it's a picture of a rainbow, or even a cool superhero. We would love to use your child's one-of-a-kind card in each box!
1. Please leave the inside of each card blank.
2. Cards can be any size. From 3x5 cardstock to an 81/2x11 sheet of paper.
Each Box of Basics contains a dental hygiene kit. We include a toothbrush, toothpaste and floss to help promote dental health. Click the button below and take this letter to your next dental visit! Ask your provider to donate items for our dental kits. Put the kits together at home or let us do the work.
