Summer of DIY 2020
This Week’s Featured Project:
Shelter Wish List
Each week the Helpline Center Volunteer Connections program will post a do-it-yourself volunteer project. For 2020 we have extended the DIY Projects from Spring through Summer due to COVID-19, and more community members available at home.
Helpline Center invites individuals and families to choose projects that interest them from the list below. Once completed, the projects can be delivered or sent to the organization listed on each project sheet. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic we ask you drop off or mail your projects to the actual organization in need. If individuals or families need more information on where to deliver their projects to, they can contact the Helpline Center by calling 211 to get a list of agencies accepting the DIY projects. HAVE FUN – and don’t forget to share photos, tagging Helpline Center and using the hashtags #DIYVOLSD #volunteerrapidcity #volunteersiouxfalls #volunteerbrookings.
Summer of DIY sponsors include: Avera, Black Hills Energy, CAPITAL Card Services, Larson Manufacturing, Lloyd Companies, MDU Resources Foundation, Monument Health, POET, Sanford Health, Scull Construction, SDSU Alumni Association, and Valero.
Note: Any of the DIY Projects can be completed and donated at any time.
