Join The Inspiration

Volunteer opportunities are available for Little Saints of all ages and in any of our chapter regions and can be magically created in your own community. Little Saints can participate in supply drives, gift bag packing events, fundraising challenges, and community outreach.

TOP 5 WAYS GET VOLUNTEER

1. Start a Gift Bag Drive

Our signature gift bag program delivers a bag of cheer to every kid that visits a healthcare facility in our participating facilities. You can organize or participate in a gift bag packing event in your community or register your healthcare facility to be a recipient of the gift bag program.

2. Make Get-Well Cards

Every gift bag contains a unique get-well card that was made special by another Little Saint. This small kindness goes a long way to helping every scared kid in the hospital feel the love. You can organize or attend a get-well card party in your school or workplace, or you can make them at home with your kids.

3. Donate a Product or Service

LSNF has been able to impact the lives of millions of children around the world because of the generosity of impact partners, corporate givers, and individual helpers. There are so many ways to get involved in the magic of giving that it is life changing — both for the givers and the receivers. We are in need of new and unused stuffed animals, pop-it toys, coloring books, and crayons.

4. Volunteer in Your Community

The magic of LSNF was started by the generosity of one kid who just wanted to give back. This spirit of giving is in all of us. Take the first step towards a life of purpose and leadership by giving back. Volunteer a little bit of your time, offer your love, and there is no limit to what we can achieve together.

5. Join or Start a Chapter

We are growing by leaps and bounds because kids and their parents all over the world are taking initiative and leading chapters in their community. The Little Saint Nick Foundation is not only about helping kids in healthcare facilities, but also about helping kids become Little Saints and lead their communities by giving back.

WHY VOLUNTEER

Volunteering by participating in your community or starting a local chapter brings more than smiles to the faces of children who really need them. In our volunteer programs, kids learn valuable life skills such as service to others, leadership, communication, organization, and public speaking, all while contributing in a meaningful way to the betterment of their peers.

HOW TO VOLUNTEER

Volunteering is easy. Just fill out this form to get started and one of our team members will reach out to you with next steps. If you are interested in starting or joining a chapter, hosting a gift bag packing supply drive and event, or have innovative ideas to enhance our programs in your community, contact us for more information.

WHO CAN VOLUNTEER

People of all ages are welcome to join. We have had Little Saints as young as 2 years old packing gift bags. Most of our programs are organized by schools, youth groups, and companies, but honestly anyone of any age can attend or organize an event to give back to local healthcare facilities. Teachers, parents, kids, and community leaders are welcome to reach out to us to learn more.

LSNF GIFT BAGS

Our signature Gift Bag Program started as a way to help kids cope with the fear and anxiety of their emergency department visit. Since its inception on Long Island, NY, it has expanded into hospitals across the United States and Canada. We have provided over 110,000 gift bags to kids in healthcare facilities since 2012.Today, these bags are distributed to every pediatric patient who enters the emergency or admissions department at a healthcare facility we work with every day of the year. We currently pack and distribute 3,000 gift bags on average to more than 10 healthcare facilities on a quarterly basis (*based on demand and available funding for the program).

Gift Bags contain items such as coloring books, crayons, stuffed animals, pop-its, stress balls, decks of cards, and handmade get-well cards made by kids, for kids. All items in the gift bag are vetted by staff and volunteers to ensure each item is appropriate and sanitary. These simple bags have an everyday impact by providing a positive distraction for patients, improving hospital employee morale, and empowering kids of all ages in communities to become future leaders.

A SMALL BAG WITH A BIG IMPACT

When a patient is waiting to receive treatment at a healthcare facility, they receive our gift bag to immediately relieve their anxiety related to visiting a scary place. This relief is passed along to the family members of the patient and the treatment team who can connect with the patient about the items in the gift bag to alleviate the fear and stress associated with treatment.

After treatment has occurred and it is time for the patient to go to the comfort of their home, patients and their families can leave feeling like the facility did everything they could to make a scary experience for children more enjoyable from the moment they entered, all centered around a simple bag. Over the years, we have found that patients and their families grade their healthcare experience higher with this program.
