DIY PROJECTS FAQs
What does it cost?
Costs for each project varies based on how many employees, the supplies needed and whether Volunteer East Tennessee is overseeing the project at your site. For more information complete this form and a member of our team will contact you.
Is this a tax-deductible donation?
Pricing is dependent on the project, the number of volunteers and whether or not our staff will be on-site during the service project. All projects are planned to take approximately 1-2 hours.
How long does a DIY project take to complete?
We estimate 1 - 2 hours to complete DIY projects. NOTE: each group is different and the number of people participating may affect the completion time. We recommend a set time and location to complete the project together. The appropriate amount of supplies will be provided for a group of that size.
What is my responsibility?
- A room with tables
- Getting your team to participate
- Packing up the finished product into the box provided and scheduling a pickup with us
How much lead time is necessary?
Please contact us at least 4 weeks prior to your project date. DIY projects that require shipping to locations outside of the Knoxville-area, may be subject to additional charges for expediting.
Can we send a check to pay for our Project in a Box?
Absolutely! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to coordinate payment.
Will this go to a local charity?
Yes, Volunteer East Tennessee will identify an organization that will accept and directly benefits from your generous donation.
How will the charity know it comes from us?
A blank card for your employees to sign will be included with your supplies and will be delivered to the benefiting organization.
Will there be instructions provided?
Yes, Volunteer East Tennessee will either be on-site to lead the project or provide written instructions to follow with a finished example. Should any questions come up during the project and we are not on-site, just give us a call. Appropriate contact information will be included with your supplies.
Will I need to provide supplies?
No, your DIY project will arrive with all necessary supplies to successfully complete the project.
What if I'm missing something?
A packing list will be included for your reference. Upon receipt, double check the contents. If anything is missing just give us a call.
