Campus Beautification Opportunity
From August 5th – 7th, 2020, schools across Oakland would love your help to be ready for day one. We rely on community volunteers to ensure that students have an effective and inspiring learning environment and hit the ground running. Volunteer tasks include:
- Arranging classroom furniture
- Helping in the front office
- Organizing supplies
- Putting up bulletin boards
- Weeding the garden
Backpack Distribution Opportunity
Every year, Family Giving Tree collects thousands of backpacks full of supplies for Oakland students. We need volunteer support to help us organize these backpacks and distribute them to the correct school sites. Volunteer tasks include:
- Lifting and sorting hundreds of backpacks (physically demanding)
- Driving backpacks in your car to drop off to school administrators (physically demanding)
Information for School Sites
Please request volunteer support for campus beautification by the last day of school, May 28th, 2020.
Family Giving Tree determines the schools to receive backpacks in partnership with a city-wide coalition, including, the Lend a Hand Foundation, Supply Bank, and LCFF scores to avoid duplicate backpack donations. Therefore, we cannot accept backpack requests.
