Stress no more volunteers, we’ve got all your packing needs right here! Review your packing list, be your most prepared self and maximize your trip experience by bringing everything you’ll need to volunteer on your #TripofaLifetime!
T-Shirts (Protect your shoulders from the scorching sun)
Shorts (Preferably mid-thigh length)
Closed-toe shoes (sneakers or running shoes are preferable)
Above all, clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty in! Spare your favourite items the dry cleaning bill and load up on older T-shirts that are less valuable. Stocking up at your local Value Village or Goodwill is also a great place to get lots of travel clothing items for little cost.
Every Day Items
Sun Protection Gear: Sun Screen, Sunglasses, Baseball hats, etc.
Work/Gardening Gloves (optional, but useful)
Camera! (oh and be sure to share your photos with us afterwards!)
Non Perishable Snacks (granola bars, protein bars, dried fruits, etc.)
Wish List Donations
Sports Equipment (deflate a soccer ball for easy transportation)
Spanish Children’s Books (Amazon has some great ones, including Spanish Curious George!)
