Carecycle Foundation is a new nonprofit launching in Santa Monica. Our mission is to raise funds for humanitarian projects from donated recyclable goods. Our current campaigns include a community well-building project with Charity: Water and an ongoing fundraising campaign for UNICEF to help bring food, medicine,& shelter to refugee & migrant children.
We are a registered 501c3 org as well as a CalRecycle Certified Community Service Program – a state-supported program for nonprofit organizations that promote recycling and a Zero-Waste California.
With our unique fundraising strategy, our goal is to attack some of our most pressing environmental and humanitarian issues at the same time, at no cost to our donors.
Carecycle is committed to providing a rewarding & meaningful experience for the volunteers & interns that give their time and energy to our organization. We welcome volunteers that would like to add real-world experience to their resume or graduate program application, by helping to build a nonprofit organization from the ground up. As a new grassroots nonprofit, every type of volunteer & internship opportunity imaginable is open: in business administration, marketing, environmental science, & information tech. Please see http://www.carecyclefoundation.org/internships.html for a full listing.
One of our most urgent volunteer needs is within the UCLA community. We have an eager group of high school UNICEF club volunteers who would like to help collect recyclables from UCLA fraternities & sororities. We would love to find UCLA students to help lead & mentor them in regular collections of recyclables, while raising funds for refugee children.
Shifts are 4-5 hours long & are balanced between collections with light physical activity & career-building work in the office.
Please email us at email@example.com if interested. You can find our volunteer application at http://www.carecyclefoundation.org/volunteer.html
Start times are flexible, with usually shifts/events lasting 4-5 hours
