Craft Kit Assembly

Caitlin's Smiles

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

Volunteers are needed to assemble craft kits for children in hospitals. Craft kit ideas are on our downloadable link under arts and crafts on our website at www.caitlins-smiles.org. Volunteers donate their own craft supplies and chose whichever craft kits that they would like to donate. Last year over 88,000 kits were donated to children in hospitals.

The kits in most demand are origami kits for older children. These kits must include origami paper and directions sealed in a ziplock bag. No cutting or gluing can be required. All supplies for the hospitalized children to do the kits must be sealed in the bag.

Another kit in demand for younger children are bookmark kits. Foam bookmarks and stickers are sealed in a ziplock bag. Children in hospitals can then make their special bookmark. All supplies needed to create the kit must be sealed in the bag. Samples are on our website at www.caitlin-smiles.org.

Completed kits need shipped to Caitlin's Smiles, 3303 North 6th Street, Harrisburg, PA 17110.
