NEEDED! Part-time Elementary school Volunteer Librarian.


May, 2, 2019 –

Our friends at a local elementary school need a volunteer librarian with management and people skills. 

We have connected with them twice recently; one with a gift of bicycles for attendance attainment and two; we helped to stock their in-school library.

Below is the help wanted copy they sent – please help them find the right person and circulate their flyer.

(Contact info on their flyer.) 


Carney Academy is looking for a committed library coordinator to manage their volunteer-run library. This is a part-time position requiring about 5 hours a week.

• Manage the library’s email account and answer any inquires

We also ask that the coordinator fulfill our regular volunteer duties working at least one 2-hour shift a week.

• Assist students with finding books

We could tell the story, but it is much better coming from a Mom!

“Leah volunteered in December at the GiftsToGive Philanthropy Factory. While we were there, she learned that they were in need of new soccer balls, basketballs, footballs, children’s under garments and children’s toothbrushes. When Leah heard this she knew she wanted to help.

It hit close to her heart since her family is very involved in sports. Sports equipment is all over her house, she wanted every kid to be able to have a ball.

Leah turned 10 on February 18th and for her sleepover, she asked that everyone bring items for GiftsToGive in lieu of gifts. She was very excited to see the amount of balls that everyone donated!”

We had a visit from Sue Carlson, one of the new team members at the Whaling City Golf Club. Sue had this to say –It was my pleasure to visit yesterday and learn a bit more about GiftsToGive.  It is an amazing organization; it gives us hope for the future! We will be back to volunteer.
