ORGANIZATION: Cleveland County Mental Health Association

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 12 people are interested

Please Note: We are based in Cleveland County, North Carolina, and are only accepting volunteers living in the area.

Each month volunteers deliver a Community Supported Friendship gift bag to the doorstep of our Compeer participants. The gift box is tailored to the individual’s interests and personality. Each item in the box comes along with a story explaining how the item was crafted, its connection to the broader community, or simply why it was important to the individual who contributed it.

The Community Supported Friendship (CSF) project has multiple different volunteer opportunities that range from one-time volunteer opportunities and longer-term opportunities. In 2022, we are accepting contributions from both individuals as well as monthly sponsors. Individuals contributors can submit one or more items to be included in out monthly gift bags while sponsoring individuals or groups commit to providing a gift for all our participants in a given month. To read more about becoming a sponsor, please visit

The types of contributions we are looking for are creative gifts that are as diverse and unique as the Compeer participants who will receive them! We truly encourage you to allow self-care and creativity to be your guides. Identify the thing you love to do - that activity that brings you joy and presence - and do it! You can then contribute the end product, along with a story of connection to the CSF project. We’ll deliver your gift to one of our participants who has shared interests or experiences. Please complete the linked CSF Contribution Form ( to help tell the story of your gift.

Please complete a contribution form to initiate the process. The Compeer Coordinator will contact you to arrange delivery.
