The Bottomless Toy Chest
June 2012 — August 2012
The Bottomless Toy Chest is a non-profit organization in the Detroit, MI area that provides toys and activities for pediatric cancer patients in 5 Michigan hospitals. My responsibilities in this internship were to help facilitate two fundraisers, enter data into their online database, use a communications software to contact donors, design communications materials, organize their toy warehouse, write professional letters, including press releases, solicit donations from local businesses, and to host and oversee volunteer activities.
However, my largest project in this internship was facilitating a party for 6 pediatric cancer patients and their families. Along with two other interns, I was responsible for organizing the event, raising funds for the event, contacting social workers to contact families of cancer patients, and producing the event the day-of.
