Volunteer in your own community
Project Night Night wants your volunteer effort to be as successful as possible. With that in mind, we have developed a program that allows you to benefit homeless children in your local area.
- Determine the number of Night Night Packages to complete.
- Order tote bags from Project Night Night at $3.50 each (this covers the cost of the tote and shipping to you)
- Fill each tote bag with a new blanket, book and stuffed animal.
- Deliver your assembled Night Night Packages to a shelter on our list or that you find. We can help! In the Bay Area, we will likely request that you deliver to our drop-off locations.
- Ensure that the homeless children in your community feel special!
*Due to privacy concerns, most volunteer deliveries will be made to shelter administrative offices and not to the homeless children directly.

What is a Night Night Package and how can I help?
Every year we donate over 25,000 Night Night Packages, free of charge, to homeless children across the country who need our childhood and educational essentials to feel secure, ready to learn, and important.
Each Night Night Package contains a new security blanket, an age-appropriate children’s book, and a stuffed animal — all nestled inside of a canvas tote bag.
Project Night Night establishes a foundation for lasting change through our Adopt a Night Night Package program. This meaningful, hands-on volunteer opportunity allows volunteers of all ages to create Night Night Packages that will benefit their own communities. Get involved today!
ATTENTION SF & BAY AREA: AS OF 12/5 :We are not able to fill any SAN FRANCISCO OR BAY AREA tote orders until January 2017. The immediate shelters needs have been met as shelters have their holiday events very early in December. Please feel free to place an order in January when we can serve the new children in the Bay Area shelters. PLEASE DO NOT PLACE A TOTE ORDER AT THIS TIME IF YOU LIVE IN THE BAY AREA. YOUR MONEY WILL BE REFUNDED. If you would like to help, please consider ordering an item from our Wishlist or participate in our program starting in January. Thank you!
***WEEK of 12/3- Due to the overwhelming response of the community to be involved, we are out of tote bags and awaiting replenishment. Totes will ship Friday, 12/9 when we receive replenishment from the factory. Please consider this prior to ordering.
HOLIDAY OFFICE CLOSURE
No tote bags will ship out to volunteers after 12/16.
Staff will not be on hand to assist with shelter placements. All shelter requests for holiday orders typically happen early December. Completed Night Night Packages without prior arrangements will need to be held to be delivered in 2017.
Tribute gifts and end of year donations WILL be processed.
