DIY Kit: Fun with Learning
Help local families and children have fun while staying safe at home by creating a Fun with Learning kit! These kits are designed to address learning gaps created by school closures, to give children a chance to have fun while learning at home. This is a great pop-up project for a group, but can also be completed by individuals. Completed care kits will be distributed to children and families through United Way's network of nonprofit partners.
1. Gather Supplies: See below for a list of suggested supplies. You may want to host a drive first, to gather supplies.
2. Pack Kits: Have a packing party, set up an assembly line in your break room, or pack items at home. Place items into cardboard boxes or plastic bins, making sure that each bin contains at least five items. You may want to put a tag on the box that indicates what age group and, if applicable, gender the box is intended for. Take pictures of your efforts and share on social media with #LiveUnited and #ItascaStrong.
3. Deliver Your Kits: Contact United Way at 218-999-7570 or email email@example.com to arrange for kit pickup or delivery.
