volunteer activities for 13 year old

My 13 year old daughter is interested in volunteering but the recommendations listed on BPN are pretty old and pre-COVID.  Does anyone have any suggestions or know of opportunities?  She is interested in both during the holidays and after.  Since she is < 16 years old it may be that I have to volunteer with her but that might be fun.  Thanks

County food banks have a variety of needs for volunteers. At the Contra Costa county food bank kids 11 and up can volunteer if an adult is with them. My daughter enjoys doing that with me.

P.S. I should mention that the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano County warehouse in Fairfield is next door to the Jelly Belly factory and we stop by the gift shop as as an added treat to ourselves after our volunteer shift.

Do you know about volunteermatch.org? They help you search by age group of volunteer, interest, location... pretty cool. 

Suggest she first think about what type of people, things she’s interested in being around —seniors? puppies? arts & crafts, sports. Then check out Volunteer Match https://www.volunteermatch.org/
