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 are happy to accept drop off donations of baked goods. You may plan to prepare up to two dozen items. Suggestions might be: cookies/cookie bars/rice krispie treats, cupcakes, muffins, bundt cakes, pies, sheet cakes, sweet rolls, scones, brownies, etc. If you would like to prepackage items such as cookies and brownies, etc. in grab-and-go portions of two to three items, it would be especially convenient for our families. These items may be dropped off in our office any day of the week between the hours of 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. We are especially interested in breakfast goodies, too, such as scones, coffee cakes, sweet rolls, turnovers, muffins, etc.
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
