Volunteer!

_SCD6903We could not do what we do without volunteers! If you are interested in helping us, please see the list below, then send us an email via Contact Us.

(Volunteers need to be a minimum of 8 years old. Any volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian 18 years or older.)

I met Brenda at church. Later, I had some things to give away, so I called her.  The more I listened the more I liked.  I volunteered and I’m glad that I did.  Brenda’s work really does fill a unique need and it feels really good to be helping people at a time when they need it most.”           -Karen Fleming

  • Contribute to our development and PR committee by helping us refine new approaches to fundraising, sponsorships, advertising, etc.

Volunteer Opportunities:

My Birthday MattersHelp us recognize disadvantaged children on their birthdays! We need volunteers to assist us as we coordinate fundraising events, coordinating and customizing each child’s birthday presents, and delivering presents for this program. In addition, you could help by buying kids presents from their wish lists, or purchasing and donating simple necessities such as underwear, clothes and school supplies.
