We cannot do what we do without the efforts of our many volunteers.
We have on-going volunteer commitments as well as one-time tasks. You can take a project from start to finish. You can take on a role and lead those efforts of our group.
You are also welcome to serve on committees with a focus on a specific goal. We have committees for:
- Awareness and Advocacy
- Food Insecurity
- Member Connections
- School Advocacy
- Welcoming New Members
Our volunteer activities can be performed by either a parent or a teen member.
If you would like to become more involved with Celiac Kids Connection, please drop us an email.
Host a Gluten-Free Food Drive
Food insecurity is a problem for many. It is poses unique problems for those with celiac disease who have to maintain a gluten-free diet. The gluten-free diet is expensive and finding specialty gluten-free products at food pantries can be difficult.
You can help by hosting a gluten-free food drive for a local food pantry. We will provide a kit with all the resources you need to help others.
Sign-up here to learn more or to register to host a food drive.
Green Ribbon Projects
Are you a teen member of the group? Have you ever thought that you would like to contribute to our group? Green Ribbon Projects are a way for teens to become active participants.
A Green Ribbon Project can be planning an event or creating a resource for our membership. The board has a developed a list of suggested projects, but this is really about what you want to do for the group. We would love to see Green Ribbon Projects based on a teen’s original idea.
All Green Ribbon Projects need to be approved by the board before they are started.
If you are interested in performing a Green Ribbon Project, please email Francie Kelley for an application.
