Volunteering at Campagna:
At Campagna Academy, we recognize that a volunteer is a special kind of donor. Volunteers give their time and talent to help advance the agency’s goals. Without volunteer support we could not accomplish our mission of restoring hopes and building dreams of the youth we serve.
For more information on any of these opportunities please contact Beth at 219.322.8614 x332 Bszamatowicz@cahope.org
Currently, Campagna Academy has the following volunteering opportunities available:
Halloween Candy Drive Hosts Needed: We are looking for some generous individuals and groups who are willing to host a Halloween Candy Drive for our youth! Each year our kids trick or treat around our campus and we need some help gathering supplies for this year’s activity. We are looking for any type of candy, as long as it does not contain nuts, nut butters, or chewing gum. Items are needed by 10/26.
Thanksgiving Food Drive Hosts: We are looking for a volunteer or volunteer group to host a non-perishable food drive. Food will be delivered to our Foster Families and Home Based Clients for the Thanksgiving Holiday. Donations need to be dropped off to our Administration Building located at 7403 Cline Ave. in Schererville M-F 8:30am – 4:30pm by 11/13/18. A full wish list can be emailed to you.
Thanksgiving Pack-A-Thon: We are in need of volunteers to help us pack holiday food bags that will be delivered to our Foster Families and Home Based Clients just in time for Thanksgiving. The Pack-A-Thon will take place on Friday, November 16 from 9:30am – 11:30am. Some stooping and bending will be needed for this project.
Host a Holiday Drive: We are looking for volunteers to host drives for holiday gifts for our youth! We are looking for sports balls, coloring books, books, sports magazines, body wash/body lotion, pajamas and gift cards. Gift cards should be $5 and up to retailers such as Target, Wal-Mart, Kohl’s, Old Navy, TJ Maxx, Marshall’s or Five Below. Donations need to be delivered to campus by 12/5.
Holiday Cookie Bakers Needed: We are looking for volunteers to help bake cookies for our youth this holiday season! All types of cookies are accepted, but please do not include nuts or nut butters, as many of our youth have nut allergies. All cookies will be due to our Administration Building by Tuesday, 12/17.
Volunteers Needed for Our Foster Care Holiday Party: 10 volunteers are needed on Thursday, December 6th from 4pm – 8pm to assist with craft stations, cookie baking, food service and more. Volunteers must be 21 or older for this volunteer project.
No Sew Blanket’ Supply Drive Hosts Needed! We are looking for volunteers willing to host a “No Sew Blanket” Supply Drive with their colleagues, church groups, families and friends! We are looking for 1.5 yd sized fleece in baby/toddler themed prints and 2.5 yd sized fleece in teen themed prints. Once enough supplies are gathered, a volunteer project will be posted to make blankets for our residential and foster care youth. Volunteer Impact: Provide necessary resources to ensure that each client of Campagna Academy receives a “warm welcome” upon their arrival.
Bedroom Decor Drive: We are looking for groups, organizations, churches, and families who are willing to host a Bedroom Decor Drive for the youth of Campagna. Items would include things such as, stuffed animals, bedroom rugs, posters, pillows (without sequence or beading), twin blankets, twin sheet sets and pillowcases for both boys and girls. This is a great opportunity for families of all ages as it can be done remotely and not on our campus. Volunteer Impact: Assist in gathering necessary items to help our youth make their rooms feel more like home and provide a more positive experience for the residential youth in our care.
