Shopping Assistant [Warehouse Warrior]

Helping Mamas is the Baby Supply Bank of Georgia. Our mission is to connect helping mamas to mamas needing help. We began operations in 2014 and have served enough families and children to fill the seats in Mercedes Benz stadium 4 times. We work with partner agencies throughout the Georgia area to provide diapers, wipes, clothing, and gently used baby products to families and children in low-income communities. 

We serve a diverse group of people. We serve children that have medical needs, religious groups, domestic violence, refugees and families that are experiencing homelessness to sustain themselves on their own. We rely heavily on volunteers from corporate offices and the community. The products we provide for our agencies clients are solely through donations from our community and corporate sponsors. There are 1 in 3 mothers that do not have the means to provide diapers for their child. Without diapers, parents are not able to send their children to daycare. Without being able to work, parents do not have disposable income. By serving as the diaper bank of Georgia, we can provide these families with the tools to begin sustaining themselves on a healthy journey to raise their children and utilize the services other agencies are providing. 

Help us fight diaper need and poverty by volunteering as a weekly Shopping Assistant/Warehouse Warrior. Opportunities vary, and you are welcome to select the shift that works with your schedule. We offer shifts from 9:30AM-11:30AM and 1:30PM-3:30PM, Monday through Friday. Shopping Assistants will help pack and fill clients wish lists by assisting Social Workers/Case Managers. Our partner agencies come in to shop (at no cost) for their clients. The items are loaded and given to clients via Social Workers/Case Managers. If shopping is slow then volunteers will inventory and sort donations. The donations will then be shelved in our warehouse. All volunteer tasks take place in door. With your help, we are able to serve more families in need in our community. Our staff can only get so much product in and out.

If you have any limitations, please let us know. We are willing to accommodate in every way.
