*IMPORTANT UPDATE: WE ARE CLOSED*
After 11 years, You Can’t Spoil a Baby has closed it’s doors for an unknown amount of time. Change happens to the best of us and we need time to reassess our future of offering baby supplies to Manitoba families in need.
We know that the need for resources is huge right now so this decision was not made lightly. Thank you for being there with us along this journey and we hope to be back in the future. 💜
In the meantime, if you need baby supplies or are looking for a place to donate your baby things, consider checking out Manitoba 211 where you can search for government, health and social services, 24/7 in many languages.You Can’t Spoil a Baby needs volunteers to accept donations of baby items at their home-based drop spot. When a donation arrives at your drop spot, you will sort, assess and prepare the baby items for gifts. These items will either be used by you to make and deliver gifts, or you will share them with our other volunteers to use in their gifts.
The Gift Coordinator position is rewarding and flexible and was designed so that busy, charitable people like yourself can participate in a great volunteer experience. We’ll add your home address to our Drop Spot map and with the help of the YCSAB team and our online training manual, we’ll prepare you to start collecting, preparing and coordinating the making of custom baby gifts.
To assist you in this process, you’ll join our confidential Facebook group which helps our team access information, streamline communication and collaborate to help Manitoba families in need. Good organizational and communication skills, empathy and integrity, along with a willingness to learn and use our technology tools like social media, email, and gift tracking software are assets.
Most of our gift applicants and volunteers are from Winnipeg and surrounding areas, but as YCSAB grows, there may be more rural opportunities. We accept volunteers from across Manitoba.
