Helping Hands

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 jeninestc@gmail.com to share your email and/or for more information.
