A meeting is held with each potential volunteer to determine their skills and interest. This makes it possible for everyone to volunteer in an area that is most fulfilling and rewarding to him or her. Volunteers are essential to the Tender Life Ministry and there are never too many. People can give of their time by volunteering to provide transportation, provide baby-sitting, teaching a craft or cooking class; teaching a bible study class, assisting in the office, being a companion to one of the residents, providing meals etc. Meals can be provided once a month or once a week.
If it’s not possible or convenient for a person to give of their time there are additional ways to make life easier for the families within the Tender Life program. These include: providing money-off coupons, utilizing the many “buy one, get one free” ads from local grocery stores (you use one and donate the other to Tender Life); making a monetary donation; donating educational toys, books, puzzles, donating new or lovingly worn baby or toddler clothing; donating paper items (paper towels, toilet tissue, Kleenex, etc.).
New volunteers and new ways to volunteer are encouraged and welcomed.
“There are those who have little and give it all. These are the believers in life and the bounty of life and their coffers are never empty.”
