Volunteers and donors are considered “the heart” of LifeROOTS and among its most valuable resources. They help to make a real impact on the lives of people living with disabilities in our community. Volunteers and donors who join LifeROOTS can serve in a variety of roles:
- Painting a Day Hab center or classroom; helping to organize the manpower and funds to paint the rooms our clients use the most.
- Helping raise money for wheelchairs for the Day Hab Many of our clients do not need wheel chairs, but we require them in the case of an emergency exit is required.
- Provide tickets to events around the city. The Day Hab, Literacy and Career Discovery clients take field trips daily. Many of the clients only have a $20.00 budget for entertainment. Donations of tickets to the museums, exhibits at the museums, zoo, botanical gardens, and aquarium, Explora, events at Santa Ana Star Center, convention center and others are greatly appreciated.
- Organize a small group of 5 to 7 individuals to bring a program to our Day Hab, monthly, for approximately one hour. Such as snack and karaoke, drum circles, science classes, yoga and more.
LifeROOTS can’t achieve its mission without help from the community. Caring individuals who are interested in working with people with disabilities can contact Kathleen Cates at 505-255-5501 ext. 1800.
