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.
