Baby Boutique - Wellspring Family Services

We are lucky to be part of a community that supports Wellspring's mission to help families tap into their own self-resilience. Sometimes this generosity becomes especially enthusiastic! This can leave our Baby Boutique interns overwhelmed by the amount of donations we receive and struggling to keep up with the large volume. We are asking for your help sorting through clothes that have been graciously donated to the Baby Boutique. This will entail separating items into different sizes and categories so they can easily be mixed into our current inventory. It will be a busy, but really fun day, and you will come away with a ton of knowledge about kids' clothes and sizes! Your efforts will make sure that there are plenty options for families to choose from when they come in for a shopping trip. Wellspring is looking for 10-15 volunteers to come out and sort clothes(donations) on the 3rd Saturday of every month. This request is reoccurring, Monthly. The time is 9:30-11:30 every third Saturday of the month, ongoingly throughout the year of 2019.

Every non-holiday Saturday during the school year, mentees attend four-hour sessions. In the mornings, test prep, writing and critical thinking, and math instructors guide them through our Test Prep, Writing & Critical Thinking, and Math Matters programs. In the afternoons, mentors arrive for two hours of mentoring, bonding, “what’s going on in the world” discussions, the “great debate” series, planning of classes and extracurricular activities, summer program and financial aid applications, college preparation, and other enrichment, college readiness, and mentoring activities.

Come Volunteer on the Farm!

Paradise Farm is the headquarters site of Farmer Frog. We are growing using permacultural and modern practices, we have livestock, orchard, aquaponics and many other wonderful systems. We share the food with families in the community who have little or no access to fresh food. The space is often visited by schools and children of all ages 0-100, as well as groups who are transitioning, youth detention releasees and folks who live with mental illness. Because the farm is located in the middle of Paradise Valley Conservation Area, it is an important wildlife habitat and restoration site and an educational spot where people can learn how to grow food in harmony with wildlife and the natural ecosystem. Because we are in the conservation area,enter the farm through the Paradise Valley Conservation Area trail-head parking lot. The gate opens to a gravel driveway. Park just on the right side of the gravel driveway. Walk onto the farm.Come volunteer on the farm and learn about farming, food systems, and community! https://www.google.com/maps/place/Paradise+Valley+Conservation+Area+Parking+and+Trail+Head/@47.7886076,-122.0798392,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0xdd7f2544c35beaa4!8m2!3d47.7886076!4d-122.0798392
