Get Involved with the Chelsea Hicks Foundation!
Volunteers are the heart of our organization, and there are many ways for volunteers to make a difference. Whether you want to visit the hospital each month or once a year, or you prefer to stuff envelopes or sort costumes at our warehouse, every volunteer is valued.
Chelsea’s Closet visits Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel and Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. Volunteers help children select costumes and accessories, and assists them with crafts, snacks and the costume parade. Volunteer commitment of at least 4 visits per year required. Hospital training and approval included. 18 years and above requirement.
Our annual fundraising event, the Costume Ball, is fueled by volunteer power. We seek volunteers to serve on the planning committee, to help secure items for the silent and live auctions, or to help on the day of the event with a variety of functions: set up, take down, check in and check out, auction helpers and event staff.
If your company fosters volunteerism, consider sending a team to support CHF. Our corporate partners have been especially helpful with processing costumes and putting craft projects together at our warehouse and with providing assistance at our annual Costume Ball.
The Chelsea Hicks Foundation was created to help children, and kids are some of our biggest ambassadors. There are many ways for children to contribute to CHF: hold a costume drive, donate money from car washes or cookie sales, help at the warehouse or assist with craft prep. If your scout troop, sports team, church youth or school group or honors program is interested in learning more, please contact our volunteer coordinator.
