Volunteer Together Events

Beginning in 2019, Do Good Roseville plans to host a monthly 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.

Upcoming events

Sat, February 8, 2020, 8:30 am to 12:30 pm

Our February Volunteer Together event will be to help facilitate for the American Lung Association “Fight For Air Climb”. It is one of the American Lung Association’s signature fundraising events. These stair climbs are held in prominent skyscrapers, giving participants the opportunity to join together with friends, family and co-workers to climb to the top of the building! We will NOT be climbing! We will be volunteering from 8:30am-12:30pm on February 8, 2020. This event is open to ages 16+.

A few of the volunteer tasks include: replenishing the water stations, registration, greeters, gear check and passing out food/beverages.

ALA asks that all volunteers are willing to stand for a majority of the volunteer shift as this is a fast pace event with little time to sit. With over 100 needed volunteers on the Climb Day, we are always looking for more.

This event is at the US Bank Plaza, 200 South 6th Street, Mpls.

Registration is required so we can provide a count of volunteers. To register, go to: https://tinyurl.com/qrd77y5 or go to the Register page on this site.


Saturday, January 11 2020, 10 am to 12 pm

This was a great event for a great cause last January, so we are doing it again! Join us for a family friendly one-time volunteer event to ‘Change Lives with School Supplies’! On Saturday, January 11 from 10 am to 12 pm we are hosting a group volunteer event at the Twin Cities Kids in Need Resource Center ( tckinrc.org )

Operating as a free store for teachers serving eligible area schools, the TCKINRC provides much needed supplies to their students for learning and excelling in the classroom. We will either be sorting and organizing supplies, or packing backpacks for school kids. Kids as young as age 5 are welcome so it’s a great family volunteer event.

Saturday, March 9 – Feed My Starving Children

FMSC-White-RGB

Volunteers hand pack scientifically formulated meals for undernourished children, which are distributed to a network of 80+ partners in 60+ countries each.

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.


Saturday, February 16 – Bundles of Love

Bundles of Love Charity partners with community organizations to assist families in need by providing handmade, essential items for newborns.  Each bundle has 30-35 mostly handmade items.  Look at this example!

3 Bundle contents

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:

Fabric donations

Do Good Roseville even helped by collecting fabric donations.  If you have extra fabric, you can do the same!


Saturday, January 12, 2019 – Twin Cities Kids In Need Resource Center

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.

 

TCKINRC 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.

I’m sure we will do more the TCKINRC in the future!
