Looking for a chance to make a difference?
Then we need you!
GiGi's wouldn't be able to run without volunteers! Opening and running a successful playhouse requires the time and dedication of many, including family members, friends, therapists, and members of the community. We are looking for volunteers to do a variety of tasks that help to support the playhouse. If you are interested, we would love to get to know you and have you volunteer alongside us.
