Volunteer with us

Out of the Ashes Foundation can not provide the necessary support for bereaved parents without help from volunteers. We are so appreciative of our village, and recognize the huge impact they have on this ministry and on the families we serve! We have several volunteer opportunities – remote and in-person.

Some ways to get involved:

Practical help

  • Event specific help – set up, break down, serving, bar-tendering, parking, check-in, greeting, etc.
  • Promotions – Flyering neighborhoods, dropping flyers at local businesses, posting signs, etc.
  • Annual Mailers (3) – printing, stuffing and mailing
  • Serving on Committees and temporary task forces (event planning, event and general promotion, Medical Bill Relief grant coordinating, private and government funding)
  • Errands – post office runs, picking up supplies, hand-delivering gifts etc.

Ministry help

  • Care Packs for newly bereaved parents – packing and shipping
  • Bereaved Mother’s Day gifts – coordinating packing and shipping
  • Bereaved Father’s Day gifts – coordinating, packing and shipping
  • Connecting with a newly-bereaved parent as someone who has walked the road before
