Thank you for your interest in volunteering at a Bears for CARE respite care event! Many volunteers are needed to pull off a successful respite care program. Whether you are a future nurse, occupational therapist, or teacher or just want to spend your Saturday playing with some great kids, we need you at the next Bears for CARE event!

By volunteering at a respite care event, you’ll have a chance to

  • Provide vital respite care opportunities to families of children with special healthcare needs
  • Gain community service hours and experience relevant to education and/or healthcare professions
  • Interact with kids one-on-one in a fun, engaging environment
