Do It Yourself ("DIY") Volunteering provides a meaningful way to engage volunteers in a non-traditional way.
Every month, HandsOn Broward will offer a different DIY project. 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.
Project: Christmas Joy Baskets
Help HandsOn Broward spread some holiday joy with this month's Do It Yourself Volunteer Opportunity. This December we will be putting together Christmas Joy Baskets to benefit several children at some of our partner agencies who serve homeless and low-income families in Broward County.
