On-site Teams

Please click here or click the button below to request an activity and provide basic information about your group. 

Team Size: 5–10 (volunteers ages 12–14 must be accompanied by an adult, with a ratio of 1:5)

Jobs include loading trucks for our guests, sorting through donated goods, packing, woodworking, sewing, and more!

Specific projects will be determined on the day you volunteer based on inventory and final group size. Special team building projects are available both on and offsite.

Volunteers do not have to stay for the entire time frame, but are requested to be present by 8:30 am. There will be an orientation and tour for any new volunteers. 


Off-site Ideas for Teams

  • Sponsor a donation drive: collect items such as cookware, small appliances, blankets, towels, pillows, etc.
  • Purchase and assemble kitchen essentials kits as a team.
  • Build a dresser from a kit and deliver to Flourish.
  • Host a Flourish scavenger hunt! Divide into teams and see who can collect all the items on our list of essentials first!
