Donate or Volunteer


At TOPP KIDS we love when parents, grandparents, and community members are involved in our program! Here are some ways you can volunteer, as well as ideas for items we are looking for through donations! Please let your Program Coordinator know if you are interested in volunteering or donating to our programs!



  • Help host a parent-run family night to fund-raise for extra materials and field trips
  • Schedule a “fix-it” night to spruce up the program facility, tune-up sports equipment, or prepare a garden
  • Help create a photo album for the program
  • Lend items for display such as paintings, photographs, or collections
  • Check out your program’s wish list of resource materials and special guests to make contributions or connect with businesses, community organizations or individuals who would be willing to contribute time, talents and materials
  • Participate in your program’s Accreditation Advisory Committee
  • Volunteer as part of a community initiative, such as attending community fairs or fundraisers as a supporter of TOPP KIDS
  • Simply come in and volunteer your time to PLAY!

All volunteers over 16 years old must complete our volunteer training and must have a valid police check with vulnerable sector search.
