The Education Project Volunteers
Last year, Education Project helped 1,290 youth in Washtenaw County schools. With the support of dedicated volunteers EPHY is able to provide backpacks filled with school supplies and basic need items, sort donations, and organize graduation and holiday gift drives. Working independently and collaboratively, volunteers contribute to the success of EPHY. More importantly, because of committed and caring volunteers, EPHY continues to provide resources for youth and families experiencing homelessness and unstable living situations. By having a team of volunteers ready to help, The Education Project can serve more families effectively and continually.
The Education Project volunteer duties may include:
- Inventory Management: Count, sort and organize school supplies, toiletries, clothing, etc. to be distributed to students and families. Assemble school supply and toiletry kits as needed.
- Distribution of Supplies: Deliver backpacks and other supplies to schools, shelters, etc. to be given to students.
- Make a donation! We are always in need of gift cards (Meijer, Target, Big Lots, etc.), school supplies, toiletries (shampoo, soap, deodorant, feminine hygiene products, toothpaste, lotion, etc.) and cash to be used to fund special needs of students that may arise during the year.
Please sign up for an available slot. If you cannot make your assigned time, please be sure to update this signup genius or email [email protected]
Sometimes we need more or less volunteers than originally scheduled. If that occurs we will try to notify you 24 hours in advance.
