What is Helping Hands and How do I Get Involved?
Helping Hands is made up of a group of Wolcott families who help our immediate Wolcott community on an as- needed basis. It is easy to be part of because it is a no-commitment volunteer opportunity and there are no meetings to attend, there is absolutely no obligation.
All you do is share your email if you are interested in becoming a Helping Hand. Families who shared their email will receive an email notification when help is needed and will see a link to a sign-up sheet requesting an item for a student in our school.
Last year we had around 70 Helping Hands and together we were able to make a HUGE difference for so many Wolcott kids. Many requests went out over the school year and ALL, were fulfilled!
During the 2018/19 school year, Helping Hands helped Wolcott School by:
- Adding fresh fruit weekly to the food backpack program
- Donating Halloween Costumes
- Donating Thanksgiving Meals
- Fulfilling holiday wish lists
- Donating clothes to the Eagle’s Nest
- Providing winter coats, boots and snowpants
- Donating summer snacks
- Donating requested items
- Supplying a classroom with snacks
- And more!
If you have an extra item at home to donate or want to purchase something new- you just claim the request on the sign-up sheet. It’s that easy! We accept both new and used-good condition items. Please become a Helping Hand! It feels good to help and there is no commitment! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to share your email and/or for more information.
