PBP Distribution Date Volunteer Opportunities

Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, What are you doing for others?” — Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dirt City Sanctuary is proud to announce the launch of our Purple Backpack Project. In honor of the late Jordan Blaauw and inspired by our very own Tyler Trowbridge, this project will focus on collecting life saving items to help the homeless population in Kent County, MI brave the upcoming winter months. Volunteers like you are needed to help make our PBP a huge success!

We are looking for volunteers to help with PBP distribution event set-up, distribution of PBP supplies, clean-up of Heartside Park, helping Amore Restaurant with meal service, helping Salon Re with hair cut clean-up and clean-up from our PBP distribution event. We have two time slots available for each distribution date. You can volunteer for 1st, 2nd or both volunteer shifts for one or both distribution dates.

Distribution Dates: Click on date and the the time slot you would to like to sign up to volunteer for. If you would like to volunteer for the entire day, please be sure to click and sign up for both time slots on the distribution date you are volunteering for.

*We have decided to go with two large distribution dates instead of 5 to allow time for donation and supplies to come in and be distributed.

Volunteers must be ages 15+ to volunteer without a parent present. No children under the age of 10 with parent present please. All volunteers must fill out a waiver. You can download your waiver here and email a copy to Wendy at wendy@dirtcitysanctuary.org or bring your waiver the day of your scheduled volunteer time.

*Once registered as a volunteer we will email you with more information about volunteering for our PBP
