Volunteers play a vital role in the fulfillment of Bloom’s mission. Collectively, our volunteers spend an average of 6,500 hours per year supporting Bloom’s efforts to provide services to foster children who have been the victims of abuse, neglect, and abandonment. Because of our volunteers’ hard work and dedication, Bloom is able to provide continuous support to more than 4,000 foster children every year.
Help by organizing a donation drive, supporting our stockroom, and assisting foster children as they shop for clothing and other items.
Babysit foster children during Foster Parent Trainings.
Join a committee or become a sponsor to help make Bloom’s fundraisers and community activities successful.
