Beginning in 2019, Do Good Roseville has hosted an occasional group volunteer event as part of our goal to help actively engage more people in our community and build connections to other organizations doing good things in our community. The pandemic really slowed the volunteer opportunities that were available for a few years, but we’re picking back up starting in 2023.

We were part of a MobilePack event at Community of Grace Lutheran Church. 520 volunteers, packed 108,000 meals. Enough to feed 3 meals a day, for a full year for 91 kids. It was an amazing operation.
Bundles of Love (Feb 2019)
There was something different for everyone to do, and it takes a lot of pictures to show how much effort goes into making each bundle! If you want, you can even do projects at home. You can choose to sew or knit an entire item, or just do one task such as cutting fabric, drawing patterns, and much, much more. It’s an amazing operation run by all volunteers.
Look at our volunteers sewing, cutting, marking fabric, putting in snaps, packaging shampoo and baby wash, cutting quilts, and assembling bundles:
Do Good Roseville even helped by collecting fabric donations. If you have extra fabric, you can do the same!
Kids In Need Foundation (January 2019)
Look at this amazing group of DRG volunteers at Twin Cities Kids In Need Resource Center! They did a great job packing bags, sorting and boxing supplies and labeling bags for math kits.
CKINRC is an amazing organization that distributed just short of $1,500,000 in school supplies to teachers last year, and impacted 98,000 students!!! They have lots of other volunteer activities available. If you know a teacher in a school where 70% or more of the students are on Federal Free and Reduced Lunch Program, the teachers can ‘shop’ for free
