Help Us Make a Difference

Volunteers make a big difference in the lives of our residents and help us create special living spaces for them

Help Prepare Young BHC Residents for School

DIY Volunteer Project: Shop, Fill, Drop it off!

Looking for a personal, family or networking group activity this summer? Join our June & July backpack drive for school supplies. We’re looking for 150 gender-neutral backpacks full of school supplies (75 elementary school, 75 middle/high school) to be dropped off at BHC’s offices by July 28th, 2017. The assembled backpacks will be distributed to young BHC residents during our community National Night Out events on August 1, just in time for the 2017-18 school year. It’s a perfect project to take on alone or with colleagues, on your own schedule. You choose: fill one backpack, 10, 20 or whatever number your budget allows! We’ll provide you with a supply list.
