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.

Phase II at WestSide Baby

At this time, due to our limited staffing under Washington’s Phase 2 order, we are unable to maintain our regular volunteer shifts. Please read our FAQ or reach out to our Volunteer Team via email for questions and further updates.

We appreciate your patience as we monitor our safety policies to center the wellbeing of our staff, volunteers, and community.

In lieu of volunteering at this time, please consider other ways you can support families in our community:


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!
