Thank you to all of the children, teens and adults who come to There With Care to donate time, talents and items that support our programs for families with a child in a medical crisis. There are many ways individuals of all ages and groups can be a part of our organization!

Gift Packages







Kids Programs: Help a trained parent pack and deliver food and items for a delivery, bring your scout or activity group to our warehouse to assemble Easy Meal Care Bags or Craft Kits for Families, hold a diaper drive at your school or organize a lemonade stand with proceeds buying needed gift cards for families.

Teen Programs:  Have students organize a fundraising effort to benefit There With Care, during vacations and summertime bring your friends and help in the warehouse sorting donations and organizing our pantry, create Cleaning Supply Care Buckets, help out at our community events, join a parent for one of our “bake chop” events to create hot meals for families, or become part of our summer volunteer intern program.

Summer Volunteer Internship Program:  Our summer volunteer internship program provides an opportunity for a limited number of students to gain practical work experience while learning about the many aspects of how a non-profit organization functions. Through interacting directly with staff and veteran volunteers in various departments of the organization, students contribute through helping with meaningful and necessary tasks. Our program encourages students’ direct and indirect service to families in medical crisis as well as contributing in the areas of  research, office administration, fundraising activities, and community outreach. The volunteer internship can be designed around a student’s interest but should have the ultimate outcome of helping the families we serve. If you are interested in applying, please send a resume and cover letter to Jennifer.Thurlow@therewithcare.org.

Adult Programs:

  • Deliver needed items to families, volunteer in our warehouse, participate in community events, share a professional skill, take on a consistent role such as photographer, translator or tech help, help shop at our food bank, join one of our “bake chop” teams, or simply drop off needed donations at our warehouse.
  • Have your church, charity or employment group team up with us to volunteer in the warehouse for the day, assemble Baby Care Bags for moms, baby and family going home from the hospital, gather donated items for child and parent Dental Care Kits, Toiletry Kits, and New Baby Clothing Bundles, hold a toy or clothing drive, or create ready to eat hot entrees for families in your site’s commercial kitchen.
  • Partner your local business with us for families to receive discounted services, such as flowers, automobile assistance, counseling, or needed items such as food, dental supplies, hygiene items, Spanish books and baby supplies. Support There With Care by including us in your next community event to spread the word about what we do.

Please contact our volunteer department at 650-268-8557 or volunteer.bayarea@therewithcare.org with any questions.

There With Care has opportunities for everyone who is interested in supporting the families and children we serve. Whether you have a minute, an hour, or a week of time, There With Care is always open to having our community help families get through a medical crisis.
