Ditch the Desk




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

Sometimes we do our best work when we aren't actually in the office, at school, or in our place of worship. Contact us to set up a day and time for your team to help older adults and bond in the process.

Ditch the Desk days can be:

Completing yard work

Creating Kindness Kits (goodie bags for older adults including a handwritten note or piece of art), and connecting with our older adult members by delivering them

Working on a large indoor or outdoor project (painting, mending a fence, cleaning out a garage)



Ditch the Desk is a win-win for everyone involved. Older adults feel valued and important, while volunteers leave feeling energized and more connected to their team after working with their group to help their older adult neighbors or community members.

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." 

    It’s always a good day to make a difference. We look forward to hearing from you.
