Volunteer Opportunities

Your gift of time will have a lasting impact and strengthen the greater community.

From volunteering at one of our special events, to helping with administrative projects, to organizing a collection drive, volunteers help further Washburn’s mission.

Please note: because of the confidential and sensitive nature of our work, Washburn does not have volunteer opportunities that work directly with the children we serve.

For more information, please view our current opportunities or email Erin Zondervan.


Help with a special event

Washburn holds two special events each year: The Helping Hands for Kids Golf Tournament and The Washburn Games. From ongoing planning to helping on the day of the event, volunteers are vital to helping these events be successful in raising awareness and funds for children’s mental health.


Sponsor a collection drive

Because more than half of the families Washburn serves have low incomes, buying basic necessities can put a burden on the family’s already stretched budget. Volunteers have organized drives to collect vital items for families, including diapers, gift cards, art materials, school supplies and toys.
