National Volunteer Week is the third week in April and we want to take the opportunity to THANK all of the volunteers who help to keep our organization running! Volunteers assist us in providing purposeful programs that otherwise would not exist at GiGi’s Playhouse Milwaukee. Volunteers make us smile just as much as the participants do!

Volunteers keep everything running smoothly, from our Board of Directors to the cleaning crew, we truly couldn’t do what we do without YOU! Volunteers step in to care for and educate our participants through tutoring and therapeutic programs, become friends at social programs, role models at fitness programs, and cheerleaders at events. They also offer comforting words during trying times or sage advice as a mentor to families as well as participants. Their valuable time and skills fill gaps, bellies, and hearts across our community.

This is also a time to consider volunteering or providing support to organizations like GiGi’s that are vital to our community.


*We had 242 volunteers support GiGi’s Playhouse Milwaukee (a record number of volunteers!)
*These volunteers donated 4,021.94 hours to support programs and events at our Playhouse!
