Providence General Children's Association

Our mission is to promote and contribute to the health care needs of children in the Northwest region of Washington.

Since 1950, Providence General Children’s Association has generously served hundreds of children in our community. Our all-volunteer organization has a membership of more than 300 individuals participating in 11 active and four emeritus guilds. All of our fundraising profits benefit the needs of children in our hospital community.

We operate two unique gift shops entirely staffed by volunteers on Providence Regional Medical Center’s Colby and Pacific campuses.

Gift shop volunteers

Volunteers are always welcome in our two unique gift shops on the Pacific and Colby campuses of Providence Regional Medical Center Everett. They are a great place to learn new skills while working for a very worthy cause. Volunteers must be 16 years of age or older, no prior experience required. To be a volunteer, you'll need to complete a brief application and attend an orientation provided by Providence Regional's Volunteer Services staff.

As a gift shop volunteer, you'll greet and assist customers, stock gift items, handle transactions and provide a friendly place to shop. All profits from the gift shops benefit programs supported by Providence General Children’s Association.

At Camp PROV, you'll perform a variety of support activities to special needs children ages 2-10 and their siblings at a day camp located at Forest Park in Everett. You'll help with swimming, art projects, reading, preparing food and singing. A one-week minimum commitment is required.
