FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do I sign up for volunteering events?
Start by reviewing our monthly Event Calendar and browse the available volunteering opportunities. You can then sign up for individual events. Registration for new events opens on the 20th of each month. Be sure to join our mailing list so you never miss an opportunity to give back!
Do I need to sign up for events, or can I just show up to volunteer?
Crafting Kind Kids works really hard to not only provide our families with the best hands-on volunteering experience, but we also work closely with our partner non-profit organizations to fulfill their needs. By signing up for events we can assure that we have the space and supplies for you to fully participate in hands-on (or at-home) family volunteering.
How old does my child need to be to volunteer?
Crafting Kind Kids volunteer opportunities are designed for the whole family! Most events are best for children 5+, although younger siblings can attend with supervision. No drop-offs! All children must be accompanied with parent, grandparent or guardian.
Please note that some of our non-profit partners have age restrictions. We always list this information within the event description.
Why are some volunteering projects longer than others?
We strive to keep most of our kids + family volunteering events to within 60-90 minutes. However, some of our non-profit partners have special projects that exceed this time limit. This information is always noted within the event description.
How much does it cost to attend?
It is important that volunteering + giving back is accessible to all. So our In-Person events have a low cost FAMILY fee or are FREE, depending on the project! Crafting Kind Kids covers all associated volunteering costs, including entrance fees, project costs and snacks. Our goal is to get all kids + families out into the community and giving back.
For At-Home projects, we provide you with an approximate cost of supplies required to successfully complete the project. Many at-home projects can be done using craft and school supplies you may already have at home, such as paper, markers/crayons/pencils, scissors and glue.
Can I donate to Crafting Kind Kids?
Yes, Crafting Kind Kids is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. Your donation helps us provide hands-on, kid-friendly volunteer opportunities for families in our community. Every gift is generous and enables us to create more give-back projects throughout Tucson. It costs approximately $143 for each Crafting Kind Kids in-person event. We cover all associated costs, including entrance fees, supplies and snacks.
How can I assure my child gets the most out of volunteering?
When you sign up for an event, you will receive an email that explains the volunteering project, who it benefits and why it is important. We encourage you to discuss the project details with your kid volunteer prior to the event. Following the completion of the event, you will receive another email that recaps the volunteering project and how our community benefited. Within this email will also be resources to continue the learning and discussion at home.
Be sure to sign up for our mailing list where you will receive access to event sign ups, volunteering resources, kindness crafts and activities to make giving back part of your every day.
