We are looking for dedicated, flexible and fast learning volunteers to join our WestSide Baby Street Team this Summer. a perfect role for individuals who want to make a difference and have fun doing it.
WestSide Baby, in partnership with our community, provides essential items to local children in need by collecting and distributing diapers, clothing and equipment such as car seats and cribs. We do this through partnerships with more than 114 social service agencies. The providers at these agencies order items from us and distribute them directly to the families they serve.
In order to garner donations, support and brand awareness we engage in a busy calendar of community outreach events throughout the summer – hosting an information booth at West Seattle Summerfest, Capitol Hill Pride, Ballard Seafood Fest and others. As such, WestSide Baby is seeking an energetic team of people that will support our summer outreach efforts.
By the end of summer, you will have gained valuable guerrilla marketing skills, as well as strengthened your resume/portfolio. This is a great opportunity for individuals who want to make a difference while having fun meeting people at local festivals and fairs, especially students who are exploring a career in non-profit, marking, PR or communications.
