CoBank’s Young Professionals Associate Resource Group is providing 100 Kynd Kits to YP ARG members!
The YP ARG and CoBank wanted to find a way to give back to the community and bring our associates together during these unprecedented times. In addition, volunteering can make a big impact on your mental health.
To do this, the YP ARG partnered with Project Helping, a charitable organization dedicated to providing volunteer opportunities based on kind acts that help the recipients as well as the volunteers. In a world of sheltering at home, they’ve launched their Kynd Kit program. Where normally volunteers would gather to put together kits to help those in need, now they will ship a box of items to be packaged by a volunteer in their home.
The CoBank YP ARG has sponsored 100 kits, so you can do one at no cost to you. (You are welcome to do more, but additional kits would be at your own cost.) The YP ARG is planning an event where participants gather virtually to package up their kits.
Here’s all you need to do to participate:
- Choose the kit that you would like to complete, whatever is most meaningful to you.
- Provide your mailing information.
- Sit back and relax while the kit gets shipped to your home. A pre-paid return shipping label will be included.
- Join Project Helping and other YP ARG members during for a virtual volunteer gathering to put together the kits.
Details on when the event will be held and how to attend the event will be mailed to your CoBank email.
After the event, use the shipping label to send back the kit for delivery to someone in need! Your first kit is free, compliments of CoBank and the YP ARG; however, you can choose to order more if you would like to complete the kits with a friend, significant other, or your kids.
If you would like to participate, please complete your order no later than June 17, 2020 at 5:00 pm.
