Volunteer

Community members volunteer at the Children’s Home of Easton in a variety of capacities. Some people volunteer by working directly with the children while others work through the agency to support the children. Some volunteers devote their efforts to specific occasions and others volunteer all year long. Other volunteers work one-on-one with a specific student in our sponsor program.

Auxiliary – The Children’s Home Auxiliary sponsors the Pink Ball, the oldest charity ball in the area, every winter. This event raises money for the Auxiliary, which sponsors events and activities for our children year-round. Activities include: egg dyeing, pumpkin carving, jewelry making and many exciting field trips to such places as a music studio, raceway and snow tubing. The Children’s Home Auxiliary also recognizes each child with a birthday card and gift on their birthday. This is a dedicated, enthusiastic group of volunteers, and we are grateful for their hard work and genuine interest in the children. If you would like to be a part of this wonderful group or would like more information on the Auxiliary, please contact Sue Correia at 610-653-1468.

Sponsorship – Sponsors provide extra support to the student’s life with weekly contact over a period of time. Sponsors give the students opportunity to learn positive values, build esteem and creative positive relationships with adults not only on campus but also in the community. Administration meets with sponsors on a regular basis to provide support and direction.

Direct Volunteers – Direct volunteers can help by providing tutoring assistance, teaching a group of students a hobby, or assisting in transportation, recreation, maintenance duties or specific events. We are always welcome to suggestions and other program possibilities.

Indirect Volunteers – Indirect volunteers can choose to help at Christmas time with the annual WAEB Christmas Party. Help is always needed to prepare, decorate and wrap gifts. Volunteer help is always welcome to prepare for other holidays as well. We also have opportunities in our Thrift Store or with on-ground improvement projects.

For more information, please contact Nancy Ackerman by email or at 610-258-2831, Ext. 145.

Come and make a difference in the life of a child!
