Ways to Help

Host a Drive

Host a Food Drive –  Year Long Need!  
Many of our client’s benefits are being reduced and their cupboards are empty. When times are lean, we like to help bridge the gap by giving a bag of food to take home.  

Holiday Food Drive

Every year we have a large food drive during the month of October and early part of November so that we can give an extra bag of food in November to the families we serve prior to the holidays. 

Holiday Toy Drive: November – mid-December

Brighten the holidays for a family in need.  Please donate a toy for a child.  Gifts are needed for children (pre-school to teenagers).
Sew Heavy Helpers

Year Long Need!

Some of our young clients with sensory issues greatly appreciate the calming influence of a weighted stuffed animal. We take new stuffed animals, have volunteers remove the stuffing and replace it with washed aquarium rocks, then sew it back up. Minimal sewing skills required! 

Event Assistance

Be a part of the action! Help make our fundraising events a big success.

Therapy Garden

Roll up your sleeves and help keep our beautiful Maxine McClaskey Therapy Garden looking great. Green thumbs welcome — but not required!

Share Your Talents

We’d love to hear YOUR ideas for how you might help support our mission. We’re always open to creative ideas to spread the word, raise funds, and help more kids!

A Word

From Our Champions

“It’s heartbreaking to know what some of these kids experience. If volunteering can help even one child achieve a happy life, there is nothing we wouldn’t do to make sure they have every chance to achieve that goal.”

– Brian & Mary Thompson
