Volunteer Your Time

Your Compassion Powers Our Purpose

The process behind Green Chair’s progress started from posing the question: “What can we do today to help a struggling neighbor tomorrow?” Our short answer — work together.

Whether it’s inspired individuals or corporate teams, our outreach is powered by people donating their time to #DoGoodWithGreenChair.

From prepping kitchen essentials to building furniture pieces, you can lend a hand and change a life with our Green Chair team. If you’re motivated to make a difference? Explore all the ways you can lend a hand.
