Become a Volunteer!

At WestSide Baby, volunteers are at the heart of our organization. We know one of the greatest gifts you can give is your time. Help us fulfill our commitment to keeping local children safe, warm and dry by volunteering at one of our operations centers.

Notice: As of March 13, we will be suspending our volunteer shifts.

In lieu of volunteering or donating at this time, please consider making a financial contribution online. Generous support during this uncertain time will allow us the certainty to deploy emergency resources to meet children’s needs now and fill a critical gap year-round. Read more about our response to COVID-19 here.


All volunteers, including children and guests of volunteers, must first register online!

When you come to volunteer you will complete projects such as filling orders for children, sorting through donations, bundling diapers, and more! Whether it’s just you, your family, a group of your friends, or a corporate team, signing up is easy!

Every Wednesday 3:00pm – 5:00pm
