As a small nonprofit, we depend on volunteers to help us directly support individuals, nonprofits, academic programs, literacy projects, and other agencies. Below are some of our ongoing volunteer opportunities:

  • Children's book drives to support the Albany Feed-and-Read backpack program

  • Participation in book sales, fundraisers, community drives and other events​

  • Construction, maintenance and restocking of Little Free Libraries in Albany

  • Managing our eBay listings for nonessential goods (DVDs and CDs, home electronics, etc)


In addition to accepting volunteers, we work with the Department of Social Services on job re-entry and training programs. If you'd like to contribute your time and skills to our organization, email us at info@grassrootgivers.org
