Volunteer to help at local Hand to Hold events
Hand to Hold uses volunteers for local fundraising events in the spring and fall. This may include set up, registration, fundraising, clean up or other event support. These events bring NICU parents and NICU professionals together to create community, connection and celebration in the Central Texas area. We will contact you when we begin formal volunteer sign up activities for the events. Fill out our volunteer form.
Volunteer to help package educational resources
Volunteer groups assemble items such as milestone beads, parent bags or other weekly, monthly or quarterly activities. This volunteer work is coordinated with our partner agencies. If you belong to a service group that is interested in volunteering, contact us.
Hand to Hold Youth Ambassador Program
Hand to Hold’s Youth Ambassador Program gives high school students with a connection to the NICU and our mission the opportunity to give back.
Many volunteers express the desire to provide assistance by volunteering in their local NICU through NICU rocker programs, material donations, or other NICU-specific opportunities. We at Hand to Hold do not facilitate these types of programs; however, we encourage you to contact your local NICU for more information.
