*As of 3/20/2020, all Providence House volunteer opportunities are suspended until further notice. However, please feel free to reach out, and we will place you on a waiting list and contact you when we are able to schedule projects again. Thank you for your cooperation, and we hope you stay healthy and safe during this time!
Our "Done in a Day" projects are great team-building opportunities for groups of 5 - 15 people from businesses to groups of friends. These one-day service projects are scheduled Monday - Friday (9a-5p) in 3 or 4 hour shifts (10a-1p or 1p-4p, we can also be flexible with these shifts). During your group's visit, they will complete a campus project and also take a tour of our campus to learn more about our organization and services.
Campus projects depend on our current needs. Examples include:
- Landscaping Projects - There are two main properties which require constant care and upkeep. We like to do a big Spring and Fall cleanup of the properties along with weekly maintenance throughout the year including lawn mowing, mulching, edging, weeding, leaf cleanup and minor gardening.
- Playground Cleanup - The playground needs monthly cleaning. All toys are disinfected and repaired as needed.
- Painting Projects - Due to the high volume of activity, interior and exterior areas often require touch up work or need to be entirely re-painted.
- Gift in Kind Inventory - Groups help count donated items or items already in inventory to monitor our supply levels and track for auditing purposes. Items can include food, clothing, toys, cleaning supplies and hygiene products.
