The Honeycomb Project works with a variety of organizations throughout the city to create great volunteer projects for families. Families are expected to work hard and work together – we want to have a real impact on the organizations we help. All ages are welcome, however, our projects are best suited for volunteers ages 5 to adult. Projects are held on weekends for 1-2 hours. Enthusiasm and giggles are always welcome.
A suggested donation of $15/family is requested to help subsidize the cost of supplies and materials. Registration opens at 9 am on the 15th of the month prior to the event. Register here on our website or sign up to receive our event invitations.
