Kits For Helping Mamas

Helping Mamas is the diaper supply bank of Georgia. There are more than 300,000 children living in poverty, and they need your help.

What volunteers can do from home: One of the best ways to volunteer for Helping Mamas from your home is to create kits! Their partners and families love to receive kits, and it is a great way to connect with the mothers and children in need. There are kit options for all age ranges, newborn to age 12. Each kit has a list of items to guide you, but please feel free to get creative and have fun! This project can be done at any time, just register for any date and then get creative.

Pebble Tossers Nonprofit Expo 2021

On Sunday, April 18th, Pebble Tossers presents our 6th Ripple Run 5K/1K & Nonprofit Expo. Last year's inaugural Virtual Ripple Run + Nonprofit Expo was well received and will once again be a virtual event.

The Nonprofit Expo is a motivational, and FUN Virtual Service Event where children and families learn how to become active participants in our community. Through engaging at-home hands-on activities, volunteers are given exposure to new organizations so they can make a difference in our community. The Nonprofit Expo will be a Facebook Live event featuring 6 local nonprofits providing an overview of their organizations and at-home service projects ideas or educational activity related to their missions.

Each nonprofit will demonstrate a hands-on project that volunteers can do from home and then bring to the nonprofit organization or provide an educational activity. Below are the nonprofits participating and their activity:

InCommunity: Volunteers will learn how to start an eggshell seedling cup, which can then be transplanted into the gardens at one of InCommunity's residential homes or day program sites.

Covenant House- GA: Volunteers will participate in an educational activity, through which they can put themselves in the shoes of a young person facing homelessness before they arrive at Covenant House.

Two Thumbs Up: Q&A about Autism and introduction of the Penpal project.

Helping Mamas: Volunteers will learn how to make baby hygiene kits and others.

Open Hand Atlanta: Educational segment on the volunteer needs and how to participate.

Lifeline Animal Project: Volunteers can make Snuffle Mats for homeless pets.

How To Participate:
The Nonprofit Expo will take place on April 18 from 1:30 pm - 3:15. Volunteers can join us live via our Facebook Page. Volunteers will receive follow-up emails with details on the service projects for the Expo and on how to participate.
