Ditch the Desk

Find a day to Ditch the Desk and serve with a group from your business, club, school, or faith-based organization!

Contact us to set up a day and time for your team to help the older adults in your community.

Ditch the Desk is a win-win for everyone involved. Our older adults feel valued and important, while volunteers leave feeling energized and more connected to their community and to their team.  
Ditch the Desk days can be comprised of:
  • Completing yard work
  • Working on a large indoor or outdoor project (painting, mending a fence, cleaning out a garage)
  • Creative projects
    • Note cards
    • Cookie making
    • Gift bags
    • Pancake breakfast
    • Holiday lights (put up and take down)
    • Pumpkin carving

If you have a group interested in a Ditch the Desk day and can set a day aside to partner with A Little Help, please contact your local A Little Help staff member

According to a Deloitte 2017 Volunteerism Survey,"Eighty-nine percent of respondents believe that organizations that sponsor volunteer activities offer a better overall working environment."
