Our volunteers are our foundation
Mikayla’s Grace is a 501c3 non-profit run solely by volunteers. We could not fulfill our mission if it was not for our team of dedicated volunteers! There is plenty to do, and we welcome everyone who is interested in supporting the bereaved and NICU parents in our community. We depend on volunteers to help assemble our donations for hospitals, make handmade items for our boxes, plan our events, conduct fundraising events, and serve on planning committees.
If you have a specific task in mind or if you can offer your expertise in a certain area, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Most of our volunteers need no experience to be helpful!
There are a variety of ways you can get involved
Serve on a Committee
Forever in Our Hearts Remembrance Day Planning Committee
This committee is responsible for planning our event each October in honor of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month. This event, called the Forever in Our Hearts Remembrance Day, is for local families who have lost a child. We need several volunteers to help plan this event and usually meet 2-3 times between February and October but most of the work is done through email communication.
Work Day Planning Committee
Individuals on this committee help prepare for our Work Days which are held once yearly in April by organizing and leading specific areas of the Work Days. The Work Days are an opportunity for any of our community supporters to come and help assemble the donations which are given to local hospitals.
We typically have 8-10 volunteers leaders who are in charge of coordinating different work areas during this event. Melissa will train you on a specific area prior to the Work Day and we hope to get volunteers for this position who are willing to join us for both Work Days as leaders.
Attend a Work Day
A Work Day is where we invite community supporters to spend a few hours helping us assemble all of the items that will be donated to the hospitals. We need many volunteers to help…no experience necessary! You can see more information and share the event on our Facebook page.
Make handmade baby blankets and gowns
We are always in need of these donations. If you are able to knit, sew or crochet, you will find patterns and specific information about what is needed on our Handmade Donation page.
Secure community business sponsorships for our event
We accept corporate sponsorships levels for our October event. If you or your business are interested in supporting this important community event, please contact us.
