Looking to give your time to a worthy cause while connecting with others in your community? We would love to hear from you. The success of BabyGoRound relies heavily on our wide range of volunteers and with so many ways to help, there is sure to be a perfect role for you! Take a look at all of the ways you can volunteer with BabyGoRound and contact us with any questions you have. We would be happy to help!
At the Facility
Volunteers within our Kingsway facility play a vital role in organizing, stocking, and creating a “storefront” environment for our families to choose the gear they need. We require a minimum of one 2 hour shift a month that may encompass a variety of duties including working directly with families to choose items, merchandising products, sorting through incoming donations, and helping our staff with anything that needs to be done. It’s an all-hands-on-deck kind of environment that every one of our volunteers takes great pride in. The facility is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am – 2pm.
As a Community Champion
Community Champions are individuals that help support BabyGoRound’s initiatives in a variety of ways. Most importantly, they allow their porch or garage to function as a collection point for gear donations from people in their area until our driver arrives for pick up and delivery back to the facility. Community Champions also act as advocates for BabyGoRound and may promote BabyGoRound throughout their networks, host a baby gear drive, or work with other Community Champions on specific initiatives.
Other Ways to Support Us
There are a variety of other ways that you can support BabyGoRound. Do you own a local business? Have you considered hosting a drive or event benefiting our organization? Are you a local social media influencer? Would you like to make a donation through a foundation or otherwise? Find out more about all of the categories of BabyGoRound supporters and how you can help us help more families.
There are a variety of ways to donate items to BabyGoRound. You have the option of dropping gear at our Kingsway facility on Tuesday or Thursday from 10am to 2pm or getting in touch with one of our local Community Champions who collects items on our behalf. Community Champions are conveniently located all throughout Vancouver and the Fraser Valley making it even easier to get your gear to us.
Thank you very much for considering a contribution to BabyGoRound. On average, it costs us $100 to provide one family with essential items for their infants and young children. Essential items include a crib, stroller, front carrier, high chair, and a bouncy chair, swing, or playmat. Families also receive clothing, toys and books for their children. Your donation will help a family obtain access to the essential items needed to care for their baby in a safe and enriching way. All donations over $20 are eligible for a tax receipt. Our CRA Charitable Registration Number is 821516507RR0001.
