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.


Current Projects:


Hunger Action Totes - September is Hunger Action Month! This month HandsOn Miami would like to take action towards ending hunger in Miami-Dade County through this Do It Yourself project. 





Face Masks- Let’s help ensure every Miami-Dade resident has a protective face mask! Those designated as essential workers are the backbone of our society, and every day they step outside to provide critical services they are at risk. Handmade face masks worn by everyone would help to minimize the transmission of COVID-19 to these essential workers. Think of an essential worker you know and provide them with a mask. Make one for yourself and your family members for use on essential trips outside the home. Additionally, if you create 10 or more, they can be donated to the Homeless Trust, click here for the list of sites.




Baby Picture Frames - Tree of Life Center empowers women & families by providing parenting classes and assistance accessing a variety of services, regardless of income or legal status. The photo frames created by volunteers will be part of the newborn kits given to families.
