Due to the currently COVID-19 crisis, Exceptional Care for Children (ECC) is unable to allow volunteers and visitors into the building.
ECC currently has virtual volunteer opportunities ...
Volunteers may create Valentines (either hand drawn or a digital design) and submit via email to email@example.com. Our team then prints and places them in the kids' valentine mail boxes to be opened on Valentines Day. For those needing service hours, each valentine submitted is worth 1 volunteer hour.
Volunteers can make music recordings/videos and submit via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Music choice should be suitable for children. Nursing plays these for the kids during play times to break up the day. For those needing service hours, each Music Recording is worth 3 hours per song (factoring in practice time, editing, etc.).
Volunteers can create children's book read aloud videos and submit via email to email@example.com. Winter, Winter Holiday (MLK, President's Day or Valentine's Day) or general children's books are preferred. Books should be suitable for children and should not exceed 10 minutes in length. Please be sure to show the pictures! These videos are uploaded to our internal network, for the kiddos to access and watch at any time. For those needing service hours, each Read Aloud is worth 2 volunteer hours.
*All submissions will be screened to ensure they are appropriate for children and are religious/politically neutral.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About Exceptional Care for Children
11 INDEPENDENCE WAY, NEWARK, DE 19713, US
Exceptional Care for Children improves the lives of technology-dependent children and their families through skilled nursing, transitional, and palliative care. We are a haven for healing fragile bodies when improvement is possible, and a refuge for nurturing vulnerable spirits when a cure is unattainable.
Exceptional Care for Children is Delaware’s first and only non-profit pediatric skilled nursing home, providing transitional, long-term, and end of life or palliative care to children who are all medically fragile and dependent on technology for survival. Our goal is to provide them a home-like enviroment, outside of the hospital, where they can experience life as a kid despite their medical challenges.
