Avivo’s COVID-19 Response

Due to the impacts of COVID-19, we’ve temporarily changed our volunteer program to keep our volunteers, staff, and program participants healthy.

We’re currently accepting groups to volunteer on-site to help with painting and landscaping projects. We’ve temporarily put our individual on-site volunteer options on hold for now.

Both individuals and groups are welcome to volunteer to support individuals and families in Avivo’s programs by donating items on our Wish List or volunteering to assemble donated items for any of our kits listed below.

Deloitte volunteers get started on a volunteer project benefiting families in Avivo’s recovery programs.

Please contact volunteers@avivomn.org to learn more and schedule a volunteer project at Avivo!


Avivo is a certified Service Enterprise organization that leverages volunteers and their skills throughout all levels of the organization, benefiting our volunteers, our employees, and our program participants.
