Do It Yourself ("DIY") Volunteering provides a meaningful way to engage volunteers in a non-traditional way.
At this time, HandsOn Broward will offer multiple different DIY project options. For these projects, you'll provide the supplies.
(all are designed to be low-to-no-cost) and we'll give you the instructions for completing it, along with information on the benefiting agency.

Important DIY drop off information:

  • We will only accept drop-offs on Tuesdays from 9 AM to 2 PM and Thursdays from 12 PM to 5 PM (knock on the 5815B door)
  • Drop-offs for the current projects will start Tuesday, October 26, 2021
  • Your completed DIY report must be included with your project
  • Please read all instructions carefully and be aware of the drop-off deadline (November 11, 2021).
  • If you have any questions or are having trouble getting the supplies needed to complete your project, email Zakiya Becca at zakiya@handsonbroward.org

 

Current Projects

 

Thanksgiving Meal Gift Bags: Established in 1992, the Pace Broward center is the only organization in Broward County specifically designed for at-promise middle and high school age girls that provides comprehensive wrap-around social services and full academic school days through gender and social-emotional focused learning. Pace values all girls and young women, believing each one deserves an opportunity to find her voice, achieve her potential and celebrate a life defined by responsibility, dignity, serenity, and grace.
What many people do not know about Pace is that they have a small food pantry at the center to assist the girls and families who are food insecure. As you can imagine, the holidays are always a tough time because many families cannot afford to purchase a nice meal. Participating in this project helps with the goal of 70 meals this holiday season. 

 

 

 

 

Military Care Packages: In honor of Veterans Day, HandsOn Broward would like to show support to active duty Military Heroes through this month's Do It Yourself project. The recipient of the Military Care Packages is the Military Heroes Support Foundation (MHSF). Join us as we help MHSF to fulfill their mission to provide our military veterans' direction and support in achieving an effective transition during their deployment and return home and to provide our service members with the tools needed to be safe and successful. MHSF was founded on the sole principle that we will "NEVER LET A HERO STAND ALONE". As past, present and retired service members, friends and families, our 100% volunteers are committed to the men and women of our United States Armed Forces and their families. They supply a means for the community to help give back to the service members who provide us with the freedoms we take for granted. MHSF’s mission is to provide our military veterans' direction and support in achieving an effective transition during their deployment and return home and to provide our service members with the tools needed to be safe and successful.
