Group Volunteer Opportunities
We gladly welcome corporate groups, civic organizations, churches, schools, families, etc. that are looking for short-term volunteer projects to help Crescent Cove. Our hands-on volunteer opportunities allow your team to step away from a day-to-day routine, and contribute to the community in a different way.
House Upkeep and Yard Work
Crescent Cove benefits greatly from volunteers lending a hand in maintaining our facility and grounds. Groups can schedule a time to spend 2-3 hours helping with delegated cleaning and yard tasks. There may be special projects or simply daily upkeep. Crescent Cove supplies necessary materials, unless a group has the means to supply materials for special projects that are discussed and organized in advance.
Cooking a Meal
Volunteer groups have the opportunity to cook a meal for Crescent Cove kids, family members, nurses, and volunteers. Meals include dinner Monday-Sunday, or brunch on Saturday and Sunday. Groups are expected to plan the meal, purchase all food, and prepare/serve the meal on site. All food needs to be prepared in the Crescent Cove kitchen, pre-packaged, or catered. There is the option to freeze your meal to save for a time when it is needed. Crescent Cove also delivers meals to Crescent Cove families when in need. Due to the size of our kitchen all meal groups are limited to no more than five people in the kitchen at one time.
While we do offer select indoor projects throughout the year, our priority is the quality care and privacy of the children and families staying at Crescent Cove. Often, this means limiting visitors inside the Home for the protection of children with complex medical conditions. Any group that schedules a time inside Crescent Cove is limited to no more than eight people. Please note that all volunteers who volunteer inside our facility must be at least 14 years of age. There is no size limit or age requirement for outdoor volunteers.
If your group is interested in volunteering at Crescent Cove, please contact Katy Glitsos at 952.426.4711 x6 or firstname.lastname@example.org to find a meaningful project for your group.
