Volunteer: Baby Closet Season Switch

We are in need of some wonderful volunteers to help us switch our Baby Closet over from summer clothes to fall/winter clothes! The Baby Closet is a free resource that Parent Connection provides for Teen Parents (ages 13-21), to get items they need for their babies. Everything in our closet is generously donated by community members, ranging from toys to onesies, diapers to cribs, and everything in the closet is completely free to our program participants. Our switch from season to season is a HUGE task, and we could not get it done without fantastic volunteers!

This opportunity is perfect for people that enjoy baby clothes/toys, organizing, and supporting families in need. This also is a great opportunity for small group that wants to work together and/or do team building while giving back!

(Shifts listed can be flexible ie- working for more or less time, just leave a comment when responding and our volunteer coordinator will be in touch)

Volunteer: Be the Change & Help Babies!

Krisley

Here's your chance to be the change & help babies! 

Who:

You, by yourself or with a group of friends and family

What you'll be doing:

It's simple, really. We'll be working together to pack diapers. 

Where:

Our office is located in downtown Kaukauna

When:

We can be flexible on time! Come for an hour or two, and make a difference! 

Why:

Here in the U.S., one in three families struggles to afford the basic need of diapers for their babies. For the babies we serve overseas, the situation is much worse! By providing the basic need of diapers, caregivers can focus on meeting the other needs of their babies.
