Volunteer Opportunities For Team Building
Volunteer opportunities for team building are endless with Together We Rise. Groups can choose to do them anywhere with our programs! So it’s a nice change when we host volunteer opportunities for team building in house. This Saturday the 13th was one of those days.
Varying Team Building
As a nonprofit that helps kids in foster care, we receive different types of donations. A donation type we accept from corporations are in-kind donations. In-kind donations are often a product that those organizations make. Our partners at Cotton On generously donated a few pallets of new clothing for kids in foster care. Typically, our team building programs consist of volunteers sponsoring one of our programs. So, this was a nice change of pace.
Sweating For The Kids
We hosted the volunteer event at our Brea, CA headquarters. There were 75 volunteers in total, some came in groups, some people came by themselves. The goal was to open and organize pallets of clothing, so we split everyone into teams. Each team was assigned to a specific task type. Some groups opened boxes, others inspected clothing, everyone sorted clothes by gender and size. In total, the volunteers went through 14 six-foot-tall pallets and assorted the clothing into manageable groups.
Teams Within Teams
We are so grateful to have amazing volunteers who care about doing some good in their community. Don’t be discouraged if you want to volunteer and don’t live near our Brea or Austin locations. Thanks to our team building programs, you can help kids in foster care anywhere in the country.
