Become a Volunteer
Thank you for considering joining our volunteer team!
Bambinos is run solely with the support of an all-volunteer staff and private donations.
We are a group of prayerful volunteers, obeying God’s call to love and serve our neighbors in need. If you find your hope in Jesus Christ and the Gospel, have a love for others, a willingness to serve in your community, and three hours a week to give, we'd love to meet with you to see if Bambinos is the place for you.
Please call our office at 503-623-4618 to schedule a time to meet with Glenda.
In addition to the above items, we are always in need of people who can pledge to send us a monthly gift that we can put toward our expenses. We call these wonderful people "Bambinos Builders." A pledge as little as $5 per month can still make a big difference.
Our hope is to use the money raised from our fundraisers, like our annual auction, to directly bless our community by funneling that money right back into car seats, diapers, wipes, etc. This means that we still need monthly supporters to help us pay for our rent, utilities, etc. Did you know it costs $2000 per month just to keep our doors open?
Are you able to help us? If so, please select the Donation button on the right. You can make a one-time donation or set up a recurring monthly debit.
Thank you so much for supporting Bambinos!
You can also support us when you shop at Amazon through the Amazon Smiles program. it 's a great way to help us and shop at the same time!
"Our website was paid for by the Dallas Community Foundation and generous donations from people like you."
Thank you for your continued support
Why do we support Bambinos?
How is Bambinos funded?
Bambinos is staffed entirely with volunteers. However, even without paying any salaries, our operations cost is roughly $24,000 per year. In addition to that, our Car Seat Program costs us an additional $9,600.00 per year. It’s pretty amazing when you consider how many families we reach. We depend ENTIRELY on private donations! Our funds come in several ways.
During the past year, here is where our funding has come from:
Annual Auction Fundraiser, supported by area businesses, churches and residents (YOU!)
“Bambinos Builders” (donors committed to a once per month donation of any amount)
Catron Street Fellowship
Dallas Community Foundation Grant
Dallas Foursquare Church
Mid-Valley Women of Christ
William Peffley, DO
Ongoing diaper and monetary donations from local community members
How would you like to be involved this year? Contact us and ask for Glenda Dunaway to discuss the possibilities! We’re always looking for individual skills and interests that serve our mission.
