Helpline Center, Summer of DIY – Birthday in a Bag

Each week throughout the summer of 2019, Helpline Center will post a family-friendly do-it-yourself volunteer project for its Summer of DIY. 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 Fifth Ave. 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. 

To see directions for each week’s DIY project, visit its Summer of DIY webpage.
