Volunteer as a group
We offer a variety of service opportunities for groups interested in volunteering at the House. Church groups, university students, high schools, office staffs and other organizations have done group service for the House. We ask that you limit your group size to eight people at a time, age 16 years and older to maintain the restful atmosphere at the House.
Baked Goods: We survive by the support of our community. Bakery brings comfort to many of our families during the stress of their child’s treatment. To ensure our families health and safety are of the highest priority it is our new practice to accept ONLY baked goods made in a commercial kitchen. i.e. grocery stores, restaurants, bakeries. All items need to arrive in unopened packaging and have a visible expiration date. Items may be dropped off in our office any day of the week between the hours of 9 a.m. and 9 p.m.
Breakfast Kits: Assembling a grab-and-go breakfast in a brown bag consisting of any of the following beverages: milk, water, juice; a piece of fruit, oatmeal cup, granola bar, pre-packaged muffin, fruit roll up, applesauce, etc. These may be dropped of in quantities of up to 30 in our office any day of the week between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m.
Toiletry Kits: Purchasing and assembling items for toiletry kits for our families. A basic kit should be comprised of sample size toothpaste, shampoo/conditioner, body soap, deodorant, lotion, tissues, and a toothbrush. You may place them in Ziploc or cellophane bags. These may be dropped off in our office any day of the week between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m.
Hat & Mitten Drive: This is a seasonal opportunity, but as we have many families who arrive from warmer climates and aren’t prepared for Michigan winters, this is sometimes a necessity!
Fleece Tied Throws: Handmade fleece throws are a very popular item for our families – even during the summer months as air conditioning can sometimes be a bit chilly! Both adult and child sizes are welcomed.
Pop Tab Collection: Collecting pop tabs is a great way to be of service to our House. For more information click here
