Tiny Sparks WA invites you to our 'Volunteering Busy Bee', where just a couple of hours of your time could make a lasting impact to a family embarking on a difficult and uncertain journey. Various activities associated with our Care Package and Christmas gifts programmes will be the focus of our morning; we look forward to seeing you!
Morning tea will be provided for our generous volunteers and the Busy Bee can also be utilised as a drop-off point for donated items (e.g. Christmas quilts or knitted/Sewn items).
This year Tiny Sparks WA is expanding its Christmas Gift program to include all participating regional centres. In addition to our Christmas quilts, we have over 200 custom made Christmas ornaments, lovingly donated by local business Foote and Flame to individually wrap, we'd love your help to do so!
Our Neonatal Unit and Bed Rest Care Package programmes provide a significant contribution to families with a baby in a Neonatal Unit or enduring a high risk pregnancy. Many hands will make light work of our ever expanding programmes, with activities including:
- Packing of Bed Rest Care Packages;
- Assembly of 'Neonatal Unit Milestone Card' sets;
- Packing of 'Perth & District Multiple Birth Association' Multiple Arrivals supplement packs; and
- Other miscellaneous tasks.
Knitting, Sewing, Quilting
Christine, our knitting & sewing coordinator, will be at the Busy Bee and welcomes all volunteer knitters, sewers and quilters who wish to deliver items in person to come down on the morning. Other related activities include:
- Cutting donated fabrics to size for distribution;
- Attaching snaps / fasteners to Neonatal gowns; and
- Collecting of cut to size fabrics for sewing of additional Neonatal gowns.
If you would like to help with any of the above and can spare your time, we would love to see you! Come down and enjoy some morning tea whilst making a difference.
Thank you so much and we are looking forward to seeing you there!
