Volunteering is a great way to help. Volunteers provide a vital service to the individuals and families who come to the Social Development Commission for assistance. Hundreds of volunteers contribute many hours of dedicated service that make a real impact on the low-income community of Milwaukee County. Volunteers bring their energy, time and expertise to different programs and projects of SDC. The efforts of these individuals, businesses and organizations restores hope and give support to thousands of people. Volunteers are able to engage in activities ranging from volunteering a few hours of your time to perform general administrative duties to assist programs to assisting with event planning.

YFDP Health & Hygiene Drive
What volunteers would be doing: Running a health & hygiene product drive.
Health & Hygiene products are used for SDC “Casey Kits”. Casey’s Kits are basically a “Welcome Basket” given to individuals upon arrival to our program. The basket is a shower tote filled with basic bathroom essentials that most residents arrive at the shelter without and often cannot afford on their own. Sometimes those in crisis do not have time to pack-up all their essentials.
Similarly, the YFDP youth often come from homes that do not stress the importance of hygiene. This is especially important for teens. Our YFDP staff, provide the youth with the hygiene products as needed.
