Our volunteers create a memorable experience for our donors by executing what we call the "special sauce" of our Thank?You Package Process.

Donors who give more than $50 to a project have the chance to receive handwritten student thank-you notes-the "special sauce" of our Thank-You Packages. We receive hundreds of packages each day (sometimes thousands!) from classrooms across the country full of thank-yous. That's where you come in. Volunteers review the thank-yous to protect student privacy, check them into our computer system, repackage them, and mail them off to eager donors - all within 24 hours.

After the first few months of their work, our volunteers report a newfound appreciation of glitter-art and an uncanny ability to speed-decipher third-grade handwriting.
