Volunteer to help with our supply drive

We're looking for volunteers for our 2021 supply drives in support of First Day. We partner with Walmart stores all over the Sacramento area to collect school supply donations during the summer. The community is very generous and purchases thousands of dollars worth of supplies that go right into back packs for First Day. 


The 2021supply drive will be on Saturday, July 17th at multiple Walmart locations. The event is from 9 AM  - 3 PM and volunteers can sign up for morning, afternoon, or all day shifts. If you're interested in helping this year, please click the button below and fill out our the online form.

VOLunteer tutors needed

AboutKidz is looking for 5-10 adult volunteers with a heart for underserved youth and provide a consistent presence as a tutor/mentor in our program.


Our Graduation Day tutoring program will resume at Northridge Elementary School during the 2021-2022 school year. The program consists of two 12 week semesters with tutoring hours on Tuesdays from 3:15 PM to 5:15 PM and on Thursdays from 2: 15 PM to 4:15 PM. The first will begin in mid-September and go until mid-December. The second will be from mid-January to the end of April. 20-30 Northridge students that are behind grade level in math and/or English will be selected for the program at the beginning of the school year. 


If you're interested in volunteering, please fill out this form and we will reach out to you with further instructions on training and a background check through SJUSD.


VOLUNTEER 

how we do it

AboutKidz exists because of the generosity of many individuals and businesses in the greater Sacramento area. First Day, Game Day, and Graduation Day are made possible through grants, fundraising events and campaigns, cash donations, and countless volunteer hours.


GRANTS

The Country Club Optimist Club and Pacific Housing provide grant funds that supports the Game Day program. We also receive support from Sacramento County for Graduation Day and First Day.



GOLF TOURNAMENT

A significant portion of our annual program budget is raised through this fantastic event. We are currently seeking hole sponsors, raffle donations, and golfers for our upcoming tournament.



DONATIONS

Financial donations can be made via PayPal or with a credit or debit card.



VOLUNTEER

Each year we need hundreds of volunteers to make each of our programs and events a success. Your volunteer hours immediately improve the life of a low-income or at-risk child, AND are an investment in the future of that child.
