Volunteer Brookings

Summer of DIY

Helpline Center Volunteer Connections is excited to launch the Summer of DIY. Each week throughout the summer of 2017, Helpline Center Volunteer Connections will post  do-it-yourself hands-on volunteer project. All projects are family friendly and designed to benefit local nonprofits.

Helpline Center invites individuals and families to choose projects that interest them. Once completed, the projects can be delivered to the Helpline Center office at 619 5th Avenue . Helpline Center staff will deliver the projects to the appropriate nonprofits. If individuals or families would prefer to deliver the completed projects themselves, they can contact the Helpline Center by dialing 211 to get a list of agencies accepting the DIY projects.

 And don’t forget to share photos, tagging Helpline Center and using the hashtags #DIYVOLSD and #volunteerbrookings. For more information about the Summer of DIY, call the Helpline Center at 211.

Note: Any of the DIY Projects can be completed and donated at any time throughout the summer.
