Are you looking for a way to give back to your community? Volunteering can be a great way for you to do just that! Here are several ways that you can be of help to Families Helping Families.
FHF provides programming for our clients, such as a Nutrition and Cooking Class where even the children learned how to make a healthy veggie pizza. Volunteers are needed to help with these events.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Monetary Donations: To pay housing and utility costs. Please make checks payable to Families Helping Families and mail to: Sally Meno, 1164 Dickens Lane, Naperville, IL 60563. Questions? email@example.com
Mentors: Volunteers willing to go through training and become involved in the day-to-day lives of our clients. Contact Vicky at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cars: Our families need serviceable cars to get to school and work. Your donation is tax deductible. Contact Vicky at email@example.com.
Service Projects: If your group is looking for a service project, we would welcome the opportunity to discuss it with you: Contact Vicky at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Supply closet: We welcome donations of personal products and cleaning products since our clients cannot buy these with their food stamps. Ask us for a list of needed items: Kay at email@example.com.
Other donations: Get added to our LINK email list to see what our clients need and to offer donations of clothing, furniture, etc.: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gift Cards: Sometimes our families have budgets that come up short. Gift cards for gas, groceries, Walmart, and Target are lifesavers. Any amount is appreciated! Contact Nancy at email@example.com.
Volunteer: If you would like to volunteer, contact Connie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Professional Services – Our families often need the services of an attorney, doctor, dentist, orthodontist, hair stylist, auto mechanic, etc. These services are unaffordable luxuries for our clients. Contact Vicky at email@example.com.
Emergency Babysitters – Our clients sometimes need childcare help. They may be taking a night or weekend class, which is very difficult since childcare centers are not open then. Their child may have an ear infection and fever, in which case the childcare center will not allow them to attend. We are building a list of willing, occasional babysitters. Contact Connie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mentor Support – There are times when one of our families has an emergency need such as transportation when their car is in the shop or similar circumstances. Can you be on call to help if you are available at the time? Contact Ginger at email@example.com.
Truck and Moving Help – Our families often need help moving in and out. Please let us know if you might like to lend a hand for a few hours! Contact Connie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
