You can help children in crisis
Make a Donation
In 2021, more than 185 volunteers donated roughly 28,000 hours of their time to ensure local children in need received Bags of Love.
When you join our volunteer crew, you make a difference to kids right here in Lane County.
Help in the Warehouse
Every Bag of Love is carefully packed by one of our volunteers. From assembling toiletry kits to choosing stuffed animals and quilts, volunteers’ hands are behind every piece of our bags. As a warehouse volunteer, you can:
- Sort incoming donations
- Assemble toiletry kits and school bags
- Put together bags to fill orders from our agency partners
- Deliver bags
Check with our volunteer coordinator about current openings on our warehouse volunteer team.
Sew or Quilt
We rely on local quilters and sewers to provide the handcrafted quilts and bags so integral to Bags of Love. You can provide your own materials or stop by the office to pick some up from us. We have quilt kits and batting, as well as fabric for bags. Burp cloths, bibs, receiving blankets, hats, scarfs are other creative projects we can always use! Click below for more information.
