Volunteerism is a basic expression of human relationships. It is about people participating in their societies and working to represent the voices of those who are often left out of decisions, like our little ones.
When there are many organizations in need of help these days, Diane turned to The Maker’s Place. Diane is an ordained deacon in the United Methodist Church and works at Hunterdon Medical Center in Flemington as a nurse; and yet, she spends her days off bundling diapers to cover the basics for little ones in Trenton, NJ. When the pandemic was wearing on all of us, it was a particularly challenging time for Diane. She was working on the COVID floor at the hospital and began to feel isolated. The Maker’s Place provided her with a hands-on volunteer opportunity where she could see the difference, see the impact she was making for happy little babies. It was a way to serve the community that was safe. As a mom herself, Diane has a bit of a soft spot for mamas just trying to raise healthy and happy kids!
Diane is just one example of why and how individuals, groups, and organizations can support us! At present, we have a need for distribution site volunteers, tech/data entry volunteers, and Spanish-language translators. We also invite individuals, groups, and organizations to consider supporting us by hosting a diaper drive, a bundling event, and/or collecting monetary donations. There are many ways for people of all ages and abilities to be involved. Visit our website to learn more about available opportunities!
