The WHY

“WHY volunteer this summer with LIttle Big Fridge, serving the community?”

“WHY serve food to your community this summer with your frisbee crew?”

“Serve food to your community this summer with your team!”

  1. Connect with others. Develop new friends and widen your social circle; strengthen existing relationships through shared constructive activities.
  2. Make a difference in someone’s life. There’s nothing more rewarding than seeing a smile from people you help.
  3. Support a cause. Little Big Fridge supports programs spanning all gender identities, tiny home village initiatives, unhoused folks in transition to get back on their feet, small businesses, and more. 
  4. Understand real-life issues in your community and those who are underserved.
  5. Pick up a new skill. Always wanted to learn how to cook simple meals? We have easy-to-follow recipe cards to whip up budget-friendly and tasty meals anyone can make! If cooking isn’t your thing, learning to connect and communicate with a variety of folks with different backgrounds is enlightening and refreshing.
  6. Set a good example. Be a leader in your community -- get out there and take the opportunity to model for even younger siblings and family -- charity and empathy.
  7. Strengthen team bonds. Not much will top memories of volunteering as a team and offering the gift of giving this summer.
  8. Build personal relationships. Learn to embrace people as they are and understand where they are coming from. Learn to listen wholeheartedly to their sorrows and celebrate in their victories. 
  9. Gain appreciation. Helping those in need puts things into perspective, not just about the individual humans you serve, but your community as whole.
