Volunteer Event: Help Sort Donated Items at Westside Baby

August 3 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Free

Get ready for some hands-on, on-site volunteering! Join YP Impact at Westside Baby’s South Lake Union location, where we help with donations for at-risk children!

For those interested we will grab a bite and drinks after volunteering.

Tasks may include:

  • A general sorting of incoming donations. This could include clothing, toys or other types of children’s equipment.
  • Filling the orders that have been placed by a partner agency for specific children. It is sort of like shopping WestSide Baby.
  • Bundling Diapers – At WestSide Baby they provide a package of 45 diapers per month/per child. 
  • Toy packaging/recall checking – Check donated toys for safety and package them according to age appropriateness.

Westside Baby

WestSide Baby is a nonprofit organization that collects new and used items for children and babies and distributes them free of charge to King County families in need. We work with local social service agencies assisting low-income families.

Agencies request items from us and deliver them to families who are homeless, living in transitional housing, in need of a little help during a difficult transition. We work every day with the hope that all babies and young children in our community have their physical needs met – diapers, food, clothing, appropriate toys, books, and safety equipment for their care.

Since opening in 2001, we have distributed over $19.5 million in clothing, diapers, safety equipment and other items to nearly 279,000 children.

In 2017, we served 46,000 children!
