Other Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteers make the difference in the lives of all patients and families hosted by LilyPads so they feel welcomed and cared for. There are many ways to support people traveling to Charlottesville for medical care.
LilyPads holds events throughout the year. We are always in need of volunteers to support us on the day of the event. If you are interested in short blocks of time individually or in a group, please add your name to our volunteer list!
Family & School Projects:
There are many ways you can support our guest families. Below are links for just a few projects that our volunteers have found. If you have other ideas, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know!
Gift Card Donations:
Families travel for hundreds of miles to seek medical care at Charlottesville area hospitals. In order to make their stays as easy and worry-free as possible, we strive to provide them with anything they might need to make them feel more at home; including toiletries, groceries, gas cards, and other gift cards, If you would like to help out in this manner, please refer to our Wishlist page to donate.
Donations to our Holistic Support Program:
Our Holistic Support Program seeks to help meet the needs of families' emotional and physical needs during their child's hospitalization. We welcome donations from individuals and/or local businesses in the form of gift cards or passes to local gyms, pools, massage therapists, children's outings, hair cutters, and other self-care services. We do ask that gifted services are located near UVA hospital. Additionally, gift cards to Uber/Lyft, Doordash, and gas cards are also appreciated. If you would like to collaborate and donate services, please email email@example.com.
