The year 2020 required us all to adapt and pivot to the challenges we’re facing as a community. One of the easiest ways to stay socially connected while keeping safe physical distance is by transforming common outdoor spaces into safe community places with seating, plants and natural habitats.
As we head into 2021, the Richmond ToolBank is partnering with the YMCA to activate more outdoor spaces in the age of physical distancing by building picnic tables and benches! The YMCA is in need of 75 picnic tables and benches in order to provide outdoor seating for camps and after school programs.
HOW IT WORKS:
Building Change is 50% remote volunteering, 50% charitable donation, and 100% fun. Here’s how it works:
If you are interested in supporting this project but may be limited, feel free to make a donation that will go directly towards building picnic tables and benches at a later time. For every $2500 raised, we will host an event at the warehouse and build as many tables in a 3 hour time frame for the YMCA as time allows. Every little bit will help! So help us help the Greater Richmond YMCA's by either purchasing a kit and building it yourself or by making a donation to sponsor a table build.
Building Change is perfect for a corporate team building experience, a service project of a faith-based group, or a weekend projects with family & friends. This unique volunteering experience activates your mind & body while making a direct positive impact on thousands of your neighbors.
It’s really that simple and that fun! Go ahead, check out the project options and start choosing yours now!
