Our Volunteers are the heart of C.U.D.D.L.E. Outreach. They are of every age, from 10 to 90. Many are working professionals, some were foster chldren themselves or lived in a family who opened their home to abused children. The requirement to be a part of our mission is simply 'to have a heart for hurting children'. The taskes include: sewing of bags and quilts (which we will teach you to do, we'll even show you how to keep your fingers out from under the needle); sewing scrappy squares for patchwork quilts, cutting material for the bags and quilts; sorting material; laying out batting and quilt tops and bottoms; pinning of quilts; tying quilts; matching material; packing the C.U.D.D.L.E. Wellness Kit together; picking out the stuffed animals per the age and gender of each child; collecting the toletries for the age of the child; labeling the kits; and praying for the child who will receive it. There is so much to do because there are so many hurting children. Your needed and wanted, you will make a marked difference in the life of a chlld you will probably never meet, thats why we love our voulunteers.
There are other options for helping us reach each child with the C.U.D.D.L.E. Wellnes Kit; you can donate material you may have that you thought you might one day sew into something, you can donate gently used clothing that we can cut up for scrappy squares, you can donate toiletries (travel soap, lotion, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, toothbrush, combs, baby powder, baby oil, baby shampoo, diapers, children's socks all ages, stuffed animals, washclothes), yarn and thread.
We exist to serve children in crisis with quality emergency supplies to help them re-establish some sense of normalcy in their disruped lives. We are dedicated to making a measurable difference in the lives of children who have been abandoned, neglected and abused. You make that mission possible. Come Volunteer with us.
