Do It Yourself ("DIY") Volunteering provides a meaningful way to engage volunteers in a non-traditional way.
Every month, HandsOn Miami will offer a different DIY project. For these projects, you'll provide the supplies (all are designed to be low-to-no-cost) and we'll give you the instructions for completing it, along with information on the benefiting agency.
Project: Women's Wellness Kits
For the October DIY Project, HandsOn Miami and HandsOn Broward will be partnering together with a focus on Women’s Health. The beneficiary of the Women’s Wellness Kits will be Women Impacting Neighborhoods (WIN). WIN has been serving South Florida since 2017 with the mission to “creatively inspire and empower women and girls to be prolific members of society by increasing self-awareness of their internal power, improving upon their innate skills and strengthening their ability to enhance their own lives and the communities they participate in.” Initially, a women’s social group, WIN, was transformed into the organization it is today as a response to the blatant needs of the women in several local communities for life skills, educational resources, emotional, and financial support. They provide support to substances abuse facilities and homeless shelters and have directly supported community members struggling with high costs associated with childcare.
