Volunteer Opportunities

 

Groups and Individuals Welcome!

*** Your agreement to volunteer with M&C confirms you agree to these Terms & Conditions. It is the responsibility of all minors to have parent/guardian read through Terms & Conditions prior to volunteering.***

 

HELP PARENTS GET NECESSITIES for Kids

Families select items at no cost for their children 0-5 years. Volunteers may check-in parents, assist with shopping, fill bags, watch children, help with maternity clothing, or serve food. If you haven’t volunteered with MomChildPDX before and are interested in getting involved in any capacity, we highly suggest volunteering at a Client Care Day first to meet staff, see our space, and get a better idea of who we are & who we serve.

If you are a business owner, have a craft, timeshare, or other item to donate, we are always looking for sponsorships/donations! Mother & Child works to create a sponsorship that best promotes you, while supporting parents and children in our community. E-mail Anne at anneb [at] momchildpdx.org with questions or interest.

COMMUNITY CONNECTORS

Coordinate a “Campaign for Change” for your faith community, community group, class, or business by distributing sippy cups to individuals to take home to fill with donations. Groups typically fill bottles with donations for 3-weeks, while an event or business “host” a larger bottle at the reception/checkout/desk. Group leads return bottles to MCEC at an agreed upon time. Email anneb [at] momchildpdx.org.
