Volunteer with Bridging The Gap in a new outreach partnership with Ripple Glass, Kansas City's glass recycling organization!

Are you passionate about recycling? Volunteer with us in a new outreach partnership with Ripple Glass! We’ll go door-to-door in neighborhoods near IKEA, leaving doorhangers to let residents know about a new Ripple Glass recycling drop-off bin nearby. After training, volunteers will be provided a map that details the canvassing route, drive to surrounding neighborhoods and walk in teams of two. We will provide snacks and water.  


PERKS: Each volunteer will get a limited edition Bridging The Gap / Ripple Glass t-shirt exclusive to this partnership project.  After the workday, volunteers will get coffee and cinnamon rolls from IKEA!  BONUS:  Volunteers for this campaign are invited to a private party on October 9th at Boulevard Brewery, thanks to Ripple Glass!

Upon completion of the registration form, you will receive a confirmation email with further information and instructions. Thank you!
