Opportunities to Help

 

Every year, volunteers help Windwood with workdays, special events, learning opportunities and family support. We encourage you to help us expand our mission of providing help, hope and healing to children and families through volunteering!

“Volunteering [at Windwood] allows me to show up and hopefully inspire the boys to continue to dream and to let them know they matter and they can and will do great things!”
John W., Windwood Volunteer
Campus Work Days

Visit our 110-acre campus in Awendaw to help us beautify and clean up the property. Tasks include weed eating, hedge trimming, pressure washing, cleaning up gardens, organizing storage spaces, etc. Groups should have a minimum of 15 people. Our workday schedule fills up quickly, so please coordinate at least 90 days in advance, if not more.

Special Events at the Farm

Help with the setup, running, and cleaning up of carnivals, field day, and other events held for the boys at the farm.

Community Events

Help the Development Team with annual fundraisers, booths at local events, and supporter appreciation events. Duties include set up, clean up, donation item collection, and more.

Donation Drives

Gather your friends, family, neighbors, etc. and host a drive for our most needed items. Please reach out to our volunteer coordinator to identify what items are in demand prior to hosting a drive.

Engagement and Learning

Utilize your specific skill set to provide new learning experiences to our boys such as sports, technology, creative arts, etc. These experiences will be incorporated into the boy’s Recreational Therapy time and therefore must take place during the week.

Experiences

Donate an experiential trip to the boys at the farm, including trips to the Aquarium, Birds of Prey, Bulls Island Ferry, local sporting events, and more.

Community-Based Services

Help us serve over 500 families in our community each year by organizing our resource shed, coordinating in-kind donation parties, and supporting our community-based case managers.
