Volunteer at Home for Action Day

Registration is now closed for Volunteer at Home opportunities.

Thank you to all the volunteers who participated and dropped off over 2,500 School Supply Packs!

Help us meet our goal of sending 40,000 students back to school with essential school supplies!

Create your own volunteer at home experience with family and friends by following these easy steps:  

  1. Sign up and determine the quantity and type of School Supply Packs you'd like to assemble: Elementary, Middle/High School or both! 
  2. Purchase listed items and assemble each School Supply Pack by placing all supplies into a 2-gallon Ziploc bag and label each pack with type (Elementary or Middle/High School). View School Supply Pack Lists for a full list of supplies. 
  3. Drop off your completed School Supply Packs at a designated location - don't forget to sign up to let us know where you plan to drop-off! Note, purchasing the backpack is optional. United Way can provide a backpack for your completed School Supply Packs.  

In addition to making school supply packs, volunteers can write encouraging notes for students. You can make your own cards or download our template. Completed cards will be placed in backpacks during Action Day. View card making directions.  

For every School Supply Pack you assemble, you will receive one (1) entry (up to 30 entries) in our sweepstakes to win exciting prizes!
