  1. I work full time but have a few days off in the summer. I would like to bring my 6 year old to help put backpacks together to for children in need. I was wondering which days and times are best for this. Do you require a minimum amount of time or days for this program? Thank you for your feedback. Kind Regards, Corinne Costa

    • Hi Corinne, Our youngest Volunteer is 4 weeks old =). There are definitely some things that your 6-year-old would not be able to do, but we still want him/her to come and to help out with you. We don't require specific hours or days. Any time that you can give would be great!

  2. Hello, I teach dance to a young group of kids all between elementary and high school that are interested in helping put food backpacks together for less fortunate children. Ideally, Saturday mornings are best as they have school themselves. Is there anything available in the upcoming weekends? Thank you, Jay

    • Hello Jay, Thank you for asking. Sorry it took so long to respond. For future volunteer opportunities please email volunteer@gchope.org. Thanks, Carly

    • Hi Stephanie, Thank you for your inquiry. We do have Saturday morning volunteer opportunities. We have a group of volunteers that go out to the Great Park in Irvine to harvest vegetables for the children in our WGYB program. If this is something you are interested please contact Paul at pgeisert@gchope.org to sign up or get more info. Thank you for your passion to serve vulnerable children!

  3. Hello! I am a student interested in your volunteer opportunities here at Giving Children Hope. I have emailed dbryson, but however the email constantly replies back to me saying that this email is invalid, which is why I'm posting my inquiries here. Where could I receive more information on the following areas of services? We've got your Back and Medical Supply Distribution ? Thank you and have a nice day!

    • Hi Diane, Thank you for asking! Please email volunteer@gchope.org for volunteer opportunities.
