About

The Baby Pantry is open each Wednesday from 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. We provide free diapers, wipes, formula, baby food, clothing, and more to any Gratiot County resident with a child under the age of 5. It's a warm, friendly, and nurturing environment that creates a rewarding experience for clients and volunteers alike.

We rely on volunteers to help us run the Baby Pantry when it's open, and with sorting, organizing, and cleaning when it's closed. Volunteer responsibilities for our open hours include opening/closing the Baby Pantry, greeting clients, assisting with paperwork, data collection, diaper and food distribution, accepting incoming donations, sorting clothes, and plenty of baby holding. During our closed hours, volunteer responsibilities include repackaging diapers and wipes, labeling food and formula, re-folding clothes, making up our "New Baby Bags," cleaning the rooms, and keeping items organized. There is something for everyone!

At this time, we are looking for volunteers who can help us during our closed hours and get us prepared and ready for when the Baby Pantry is open. The time and day of week can be arranged to work best with your schedule.

Volunteers are required to fill out an application, complete an interview, pass background checks, and go through a brief training.
