Save to Favorites


  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 1 person is interested

Donation drives are vital to helping secure in-kind donations for the individuals and families served at Avivo. In this role, you will be asked to lead a donation drive within your community (co-workers, friends, family) to collect or purchase items needed as part of kits that help participants at Avivo.

This opportunity is flexible: you can volunteer at a location of your choice and drop off the items at a location near you. Most locations are in Minneapolis. Here is a list of our current kit needs-you can choose one that you and your group could get excited about. We do ask that you focus your drive on one type of kit.

Optional: You and your group may also choose to put together the kits prior to delivery.

  • Job search kits: Help people land their first job, next job, or their dream job. Suggested items include 3-ring binders, daily planners, pens, notepads, flash drives.
  • Snack packs: Support our program participants by giving them a boost of energy. Suggested items include fruit cups, granola bars, bottled water.
  • Cleaning kits: Support our program participants by providing them with the tools needed to clean their new home. Suggested items include all-purpose cleaner, Windex, sponges, dish soap, hand soap, garbage bags, paper towels, mops/brooms.
  • Kitchen essentials kits: Help our program participants and their families transitioning from homelessness to ensure they have the kitchen supplies they need. Suggested items include dish soap, sponges, drying racks, dish towels, serving spoons/spatulas, can openers, pots, pans.
  • Welcome home kits: Help families moving out of a shelter and into their own home feel welcome. Suggested items include laundry basket, toilet paper, plunger, shower curtain/rings, towels/washcloths. Additional items could include doormats, bathroom rugs, coffee pots, refrigerator magnets, and smaller picture frames.

Mission Statement

Avivo increases well-being through recovery, employment, and career advancement. Avivo is formerly known as RESOURCE.


Avivo, formerly RESOURCE, provides a full spectrum of chemical and mental health services, career education, and employment services. Our paired services lay a foundation of health, and social and economic wellness, that transforms lives.

We specialize in helping individuals and their families who face complex barriers to success - poverty, homelessness, unemployment, chemical addiction or mental health concerns. Avivo helps more than 18,000 people each year achieve recovery, employment, and economic advancement.

Since 1960, Avivo (formerly RESOURCE) has helped individuals transform their lives, particularly people who face significant and multiple challenges to self-sufficiency. This includes poverty, racism, physical and mental health concerns, homelessness, substance abuse, little or no education, outdated work skills, limited English language skills, and more.

From its start as a vocational rehabilitation services provider in Minneapolis, Avivo now offers chemical and mental health services, career education, and employment services at 25 locations, in the Twin Cities metro, St. Cloud, and Princeton.
