What is a Virtual Service Project?

The current COVID-19/Coronavirus outbreak continues to devastate our community. As we work together to contain the spread many of us are practicing Virtual Service Projects with our families.

While we may seem helpless locked up in our houses, Together We Rise developed Virtual Service Projects, to help harness this energy into helping kids in foster care. These service projects can be done at home, they directly help children in care, and are held to CDC standards to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Make a difference with a fun project that changes lives.
