DIY Volunteering allows families and groups of all ages and sizes to participate in community service from the comfort of their own homes. Read more about our DIY initiative.  

Feel Better Bags
Organizational Beneficiary: ChildSavers

Impact: ChildSavers guides our community’s children through life’s critical moments with trauma-informed mental health and child development services. ChildSavers’ Immediate Response team is the City of Richmond’s only program devoted to the needs of children exposed to trauma or experiencing a mental health crisis. Feel Better Bags are used by clinicians at the scene of trauma or crisis to provide emotional support and soothing activities to children aged 2-17. DIY volunteers will help these children feel safe and supported. 

How To:
1. Express Interest in the project below to HandsOn. We'll send you instructions and a supply list* via email within one business day and plan for your delivery. 
2. Every person who plans to volunteer (including youth) must express interest. You can create a volunteer team to sign up your group or family members. Read about how to create and manage teams. 
3. Once you’ve expressed interest, complete instructions will be sent to you. We ask that you create a minimum of 2 feel better bags- 1 for each age group. Contributions over the minimum amount are welcomed, but we will not be able to document more than 3 service hours for any DIY project.
