Volunteer to Help Families!

South Coast Family Harbor needs your help! We are in need of volunteers for our program. If you like to work with children we have a place for you.  We can also use help with answering phones, fund raising and washing donations and sorting them.  We also need Board Members.  If you can’t volunteer maybe you can help with a donation to the baby closet.  We are in need of diapers and pull ups size 4 -6  and wipes.  We take gently used items so if you are looking for a place to donate your items we would love to have them.  We take just about anything that a baby or child under 5 might use.  Thank you.
