COVID-Conscious Volunteer Sessions (Limited Capacity)

Greater DC Diaper Bank is looking forward to welcoming you!
We are welcoming a limited number of volunteers back into our Warehouse. In order to keep everyone safe and adhere to CDC recommendations please note:

  1. Volunteer sessions are open for a limited number of people (5-6 people)
  2. No children under 8 years old – the play space is not open at this time
  3. The following COVID protocols are in place:
    • All volunteers must wear mask covering their nose and mouth at all times
    • Volunteers will be spaced 6 feet apart
    • Following each volunteer session the space will be thoroughly cleaned

What do you do in a volunteer session?
We’ll be sorting, packing and stacking diapers, sorting inventory, and organizing the Baby Pantry.

How do I sign up?
Dates are listed below — if you’d like to join us, please click ‘Sign Up’ next to the date of the session and complete the registration form.

We are very excited to have you join us in this work to help families and babies in our community! Please wear comfy shoes and layers — it can get warm/cool in the warehouse. We ask that volunteers park opposite the loading docks. Thank you!

Please note:

  • Our registration is designed for individuals and families – if you are bringing more than 2 adults, please register them separately.
  • Please plan to join us for the full session!
  • Please use the comments section of the form to let us know if any volunteers have special needs or requirements.
  • We add volunteer sessions on the 15th of the month for the following month. Check back then to sign up for next month!  If the session you wanted is full, check back a day or two before, as spaces do open up!
  • In the case of inclement weather, we will post on the opening page of our website whether the warehouse is open, no less than an hour before a volunteer session’s scheduled start time.  If the weather outside is frightful, check there before you come out.

We love volunteering with our kids! It’s such an easy and tangible way to give back and start talking about the issue of poverty with our children.

Groups

At Greater DC Diaper Bank, we have committed to providing opportunities for families to volunteer together.  This commitment limits our ability to accommodate volunteer groups for warehouse sessions, but we are happy to talk with organizations about ways to get involved!  Through product drives, creating donation kits, or creative fundraising ideas, we would love to engage your group in our work.
