Video: WestSide Baby’s musical thank-you for volunteers

‘Tis the season not only to give, but also to honor the givers: That’s what WestSide Baby did at Endolyne Joe’s (WSB sponsor) at lunchtime today, celebrating its dedicated volunteers with custom carols to the tune of “Jingle Bells” and “Rudolph” (video above) – under the guidance of executive director Nancy Woodland, sporting antlers and a classic holiday sweater:

If you didn’t make it through the clip – Nancy announced that more than 600 volunteers had contributed more than 6,000 (update) 8,000 volunteer hours this year! Of that, she says, there’s a core of 20+ regulars. Other big numbers include how many local families WS Baby helps – 1,500 this month alone. And how many ways you can help – see their website – the “most essential items,” as noted there, are “strollers, portable cribs, bassinets, coats, pajamas, pants, diapers, and hygiene items such as diaper cream.”

P.S. You can help WS Baby at special events too – 5-8 tonight, as featured in our morning preview, there’s a Stella & Dot Jewelry trunk show at Umpqua Bank in The Admiral District; and e-mail went out today with invitations (extended to you too) to attend the February 10th benefit tea – get on the guest list here!

  1. I made a mistake! We actually have banked 8,000 volunteer hours already this year. That is almost double last year and shows the amazing community involvement and the benefit of our bigger space acquired at the end of 2010.
