Digi-Bridge Volunteers are the Best!

Digi-Bridge Volunteers

Volunteer Week

Like most nonprofits, Digi-Bridge would not be able to accomplish all we do without assistance from many, many volunteers who help with everything from assembling STEAM Kits for students to helping with events (pre-Covid) and even assisting us with website and administrative needs.

We wanted to take a minute to thank these wonderful organizations and their amazing humans for donating their time and energy into making sure so many students get the extra support they need.

This past school year we have provided more than 2.400 STEAM Kits to scholars through our community and CMS partnerships.

Honeywell helped fund and provided volunteers to assemble 500 at-home STEAM Kits in Fall 2020. These were distributed to middle school partners and included two (2) projects and two (2) STEAM-focused books for a literary component.

This past winter, Lowe’s helped fund and provided volunteers to assemble 700 at-home winter-themed STEAM Kits. These were distributed to community partner organizations like Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Charlotte, ourBRIDGE for KIDS, Steve Smith Family Foundation, Charlotte Freedom School Partners and local schools. These also included a book on the Science of Snowflakes. One hundred (100) kits without books were also assembled by volunteers and funded by Arts and Science Counci to distribute to home-bound seniors.

Beginning in January, groups from Novant Health, Sealed Air, Mythic, AvidXchange and Kiwanis Uptown helped assemble 1,200 STEAM Lab Kits, which are paired with virtual instruction by educators from our school partners. STEAM Lab topics included Design Engineering Process, Art + Technology and Game of Codes.

Some groups joined us in-person at the Innovation Alley workspace to assemble the kits, while others picked up supplies and assembled kits for us in the comfort of their own homes. It was a massive undertaking and we are so grateful for all those who participated to provide much-needed STEAM kits to so many scholars.

Do you have a group looking to make an impact with local students … possibly from the comfort of your own homes? Please reach out and let us know!
