Donations and Volunteer Opportunities

Griffin Center welcomes volunteers to serve in any of our programs, be it a day, a week or for the entire program year.  Arrangements can be made by calling our Director, Diane Sonneman at 618-874-0637.  Volunteer policies of the Diocese of Belleville will be followed.

It's getting cold outside so now is the time for hats and gloves!  We provide a set for each child in the program so any donations would be appreicated.
 
Tutors for High School youth, someone to teach Chess in the After-School program and mentors are especially needed.   Mentors would be screened through Join Hands, Inc.
 
Monetary donations are always welcome and can be sent to Griffin Center, P.O. Box 2185; E. St. Louis, IL  62202.
 
Those interested can send a general donation or specify it's use.  Sponsoring a child or children in the program, helping families in crisis with rent or utilities, funding a staff position or one of our Learning Labs are all possibilites.
 
We are now collecting items to be used as report card incentives and rewards.  McDonald's gift cards, small toys, games and fancy school supplies are needed on a continual basis.

 We will be signing children up for Christmas presents very soon.  Each child is matched with a sponsor who provides a new gift, wrapped and labeled especially for that child and given by Santa Claus at our Center party December 17.  You would be provided with the name, age, gender and a few "wishes" to help you make your selection of just the right gift to bring that Christmas sparkle and make Jesus' presence truly alive in our midst.  You may sponcor one child or get your church or civic organization to sponsor a number of precious children this Christmas.
