Thank you so much! Me Fine serves hundreds of children and families each year, and we couldn’t do it without community team members like you. Me Fine delivers support to our families as they need it, and our volunteer opportunities reflect that focus.
Below you’ll find a list of some ways you can plug in to our work. These are created with our service model in mind. Each are designed to help our families directly or to help fund our mission.
After you review the options below, please complete our general volunteer interest form to let us know which volunteer opportunities most interest you.
You can find other ways to help and support the mission here.
Note: due to limited staff capacity, Me Fine is not currently engaging in any new program drives. Thank you for your understanding!
In-kind donations from the community are one of the most important components of Me Fine’s support for children and families facing critical illness. Needs include: baby items, gas cards, and a variety of toys, games, and art supplies to keep kids entertained during their hospital stay.
Good for: Small groups (2-10 people), large groups (10+ people)
Help Me Fine’s mission by gathering gently-used clothing and household items for our thrift store, Second Hope Shop. Want to make a bigger impact? Coordinate a neighborhood drive by posting on social apps like NextDoor or your neighborhood email listserv. Thrift Drives are a great way to involve your work team, civic or religious group, and other groups of people. The Second Hope Shop team can even come pick up your group’s donation. (For pickup inquiries, please contact Second Hope Shop Manager, Mary Angel Bastin.)
Good for: Small groups (2 – 10 people), large groups (10+ people)
Volunteer at Me Fine Event
Each year Me Fine hosts two major fundraisers, Music for Me Fine and the Me Fine Gala. These events contribute significantly to the organization’s annual revenues and are vital to our ability to meet increasing requests for assistance. Duties for event volunteers range from planning, staging, solicitation of auction items, promotion, and execution at the event itself.
Additionally, we can use a few pairs of capable and willing hands at third-party/partner events throughout the year. If you’ve ever been a part of a fundraising event before, this might be an opportunity for you!
Good for: Individuals, small groups (2-10 people)
There are occasionally other opportunities that Me Fine may require volunteer support. If you’d like to be made aware of those projects as they become available, please complete our general interest form.
Due to HIPAA, hospital policies, and our own confidentiality practices, Me Fine does not typically offer opportunities to engage with the children and families we serve. Also, in compliance with the safety protocols of our hospital partners, Me Fine cannot serve as a conduit for groups who wish to perform a service project within the hospital.
Due to Me Fine’s staff priorities and limited organizational bandwidth, we cannot accommodate all volunteer groups who may wish to work with us. Additionally, preference will be given to volunteer groups that are able to fund their desired projects.
If the opportunities listed above don’t fit what you’re looking for, please consider lending your time and talents to one of our peer organizations:
