During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have reduced the number of volunteer opportunities. Please check back at a later date for volunteer opportunities. In the meantime, please consider doing a drive or visit the WAYS TO DONATE section to make a difference.
Hosting a drive with your family or at work, church, school, or civic organization is a great way to collect items we need the most. Ideas include new socks, underwear, pajamas, hygiene items, coats, hats, gloves, diapers, and wipes. Pick an item or two, create a flyer, and make a difference!
A great way to start volunteering is by sorting through all of the treasures donated by our community. We sort and organize as a team during open and closed hours.
Seasoned volunteers are responsible for opening up our space during open hours so generous donors can drop items off and amazing foster parents can shop.
A perfect way to get your group involved is to help with our Giant Mom2Mom Sale. All dollars raised help children in foster care.
Some volunteers reach out to churches, schools, businesses, and other organizations encouraging them to do a drive or make a financial donation.
Sometimes children have absolutely nothing when they enter the foster care system making it necessary to get them clothing immediately. These volunteers respond to emergency requests outside of our posted open hours.
SORRY - DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, WE ARE NOT HAVING VOLUNTEER ORIENTATIONS. Children in foster care are counting on you to help out though. Follow us on Facebook or send a Facebook message, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. All of our volunteers go through a criminal background check.
Need high school or court-ordered community service hours? Consider doing a sock or underwear drive to fulfill your hours. We do NOT offer drop-in or direct volunteer opportunities to fulfill community service hours.
The board of directors is the governing body of the Macomb Foster Closet. We are responsible for overseeing the organization's activities. Board members meet periodically to discuss and set the direction of the organization.
