Volunteer and gifts Q&A

In response to my recent post on needing volunteers, I have received several questions similar in nature and thought it would be helpful to share with everyone.

Q:  I am unable to care for the babies or don’t live near Dallas, so what else can I do to help?
A:  There will be plenty of opportunities to provide meals for the family and the volunteers.  Additionally gift cards would be appreciated (amazon.com, crocs.com and Visa gift cards) to help with purchases of diapers and other baby needs.  Other gift cards that would be used are gas cards and restaurants as they make daily trips to the NICU.  If you would prefer to buy a gift and mail it to them, the address is: Gavin & Carrie Jones, PO Box 382479, Duncanville, TX 75138-2479.  Please include a gift receipt in case they receive an abundance of one size of diapers, they could then exchange them for a different size.           

Q:  Can a volunteer shift be split with someone (either the 5 hour day slot or the 8 hour overnight shift is too long)?
A:  Short answer is most likely yes – it will honestly depend on how many volunteers we have sign up.  If we are short on volunteers, then we will definitely need to split up the shifts.  So if you have interest in helping but the time slots are an issue, please email me and I will see if I can work something out.

  1. How about they create a "wish list" on Amazon? Then stuff they need can be shipped directly to their location (and you don't even have to have the full address visible for safety reasons).

    For me at least, it is way more fun to shop then send gift cards (but by doing through Amazon I don't have to re-ship a 2nd time). Plus you can specify a quantity so they don't get more than needed.


    1. This Quintessential Grandma thinks a Wish List on Amazon is a fantastic idea! Thanks for thinking of it, Kristina.

  2. Praying for you this morning and I was reminded of the "Midnight Devotional" from August. I was so blessed by it and I felt so strongly that the Lord was using this as a theme throughout your journey. May God continue to be praised!

    He said, “Listen, all you people of Judah and Jerusalem! Listen, King Jehoshaphat! This is what the Lord says: Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged . . . , for the battle is not yours, but God’s. 16 Tomorrow, march out against them. 17 But you will not even need to fight. Take your positions; then stand still and watch the Lord’s victory. He is with you, O people of Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid or discouraged. . . the Lord is with you!”

    Lord's blessings,
