Other Ways to Contribute

We all have something to offer. It takes courage and vulnerability to offer skills and to ask for help.

When we can rely on one another, Winooski folx will flourish, and people will have more time to experience JOY!

Mutual Aid relies on neighbors to help one another out.  This looks differently for everyone!  A few ways you can help is by filling out the 'Volunteer/Request Form,' and tell us about the skills you'd be willing to trade or offer a neighbor! A few ideas of things you may be able to do / offer (not limited!) include:

  • Bike or car repair

  • General carpentry for home repairs

  • Plumbing/electric skills

  • Baking/cooking 

  • Sewing / knitting / crocheting

  • Sharing your multilingual abilities. Become an on call interpreter or help us make our resources multilingual

  • Help with filling-out forms / applications

  • Tutoring

  • Have a car/bike? Grocery & food-shelf pick-up is always helpful!

  • General emotional support (become a pen-pal or phone buddy!)

  • Buy groceries / diapers / necessities for families

  • Money / Gift Card donations

  • Organizational skills - join the collective!

  • Connect people to us - word of mouth or flyering

  • Help us get grants / sustainable money sources
