Pop-Up Volunteering

Pop-up projects can be anything from sorting clothing donations, writing cards, assembling care packages, or creating literacy kits – the opportunities are endless. Pop-up volunteering is a high-impact, lower-commitment opportunity to get involved with local charities and make a difference in our community. We know that your time is limited, and we want to make sure you can connect with causes that matter to you and learn more about our community, even on a time-crunched schedule. Each pop-up volunteer project is designed to help you understand the impact of the work that you’re doing and get to know the cause you’re supporting while working with co-workers, family, friends, teams, and classmates.

Time Commitment: 10+ minutes

Current Volunteer Activities: 

  • Assemble dental health kits to help kids learn how to care for their teeth.
  • Pack pencil boxes or backpacks with school supplies to help local students succeed.
  • Write Kindness Cards to brighten someone’s day: Aging Adults  |  Children
