Day Before Event
This volunteer opportunity is not for the faint of heart. Heavy lifting and physical activity in the hot Arizona sun is the mission of the day. Thousands of backpacks and supplies are loaded from our Back to School warehouse to the event site. There we set-up everything in anticipation of the next day. Supplies are unloaded, directional banners are secured, tables are set out and the following areas are set-up: backpacks by grade level, socks/underwear, uniforms, non-profit area, haircuts and shoes.
