Group Volunteering

Are you looking for a fun group or corporate volunteering activity that engages your team while making an impact?

Help us build Comfort Kits, Winter Warmth Kits, Personal Care Success Kits (Hygiene Kits), or Holiday Gift Kits for individuals across Ontario or in your own community with our kit building partner Kits for a Cause. It’s a great way for groups to give back, bond as a team and see the impact that they are making locally. It doesn’t matter how many people you have, whether it’s 5 or 500, you can host a kit build – it’s that easy! Every item that goes into a kit is carefully selected for the young person that receives it. As a team, you can help us make a young person’s day brighter and the world a better place!
