 Volunteer with Weekend Survival Kits! Volunteers are important to the smooth operation of the Weekend Survival Kits program. During the school year there are currently seven locations across our service area designated for twice monthly packing sessions.  The Packing Kit session volunteer activities are great for team building for businesses or community groups, individuals, family or friends.  There are assignments at the Packing sessions for people of all ages and ability.  With enough volunteers the volunteer session will be anywhere from 90 minutes to two hours.  Other volunteers acting as School Liaisons and Delivery Team members step in, after the kits are packed and staged for pick-up, to distribute to the schools they support.  

Throughout the whole year there may be periodic opportunities to volunteer as support for one of our Special Events such as our signature WSK Race Series, the Taste of Williamston or other fundraising events.  And, if you have Special Skills such as organizing, computer skills, marketing, design, or photography – we’d love to talk with you!   

Currently, Weekend Survival Kits is looking to grow and develop our Board of Directors. If you wish to be considered for a Board position, please express your interest using the Contact Us link below, and of course fill-out the Volunteer Sign-Up form below.
