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.
