Volunteer

We're All In This Together!

In response to COVID-19 and out of an abundance of caution, Abbott House has temporarily suspended all volunteer activities.

However that doesn’t mean you can’t still lend your time to help spread smiles to those entrusted to our care. There are many creative ways for you to get involved and help make a difference. Kindness knows no boundaries!

Our Independent Projects are also great family activities and present an opportunity to empower kids to make a difference in their community!

Kindness Jars: Raise self-esteem and spread smiles and encouragement to children and adults at Abbott House. Decorate plastic mason jars with paint, stickers, ribbon or other embellishments, and fill the jars with folded slips of paper that convey happy thoughts and positive affirmations. Kindness matters!

Happy Birthday Party Boxes: Make a difference in the life of a child or adult by helping them celebrate their birthday. Decorate boxes with celebration items, party favors, candles, small novelty items, gift cards, candy and hand-written cards to brighten their day. Help struggling families create lasting memories!

Dignity Suitcases: We want children who come into care and continue on their journeys beyond Abbott House to travel with dignity. Help us give every child a proper travel bag filled with a blanket, a journal, a mini hygiene kit, and a small stuffed animal so they can feel safe and secure as they adjust to their new environments.

Facebook Birthday Fundraisers: Help raise funds for Abbott House by creating a fundraiser on your Facebook page. Share your passion for our mission by choosing Abbott House as your charity of choice and invite your friends to donate to us in honor of your birthday. To learn more about these opportunities, please email development at development@abbotthouse.net

Please note: Due to the importance of social-distancing at this time, we kindly ask that you hang on to all completed projects and notify our development office so that we can arrange a safe delivery at the appropriate time.
