Friends of SCH
The Dorothy Dixon Allen and Kerry Oliver Guilds are an active group of enthusiastic, hardworking and committed volunteers dedicated to the advancement and growth of Seattle Children's Home. There are more than 75 members who take pride in pursuing the mission of the Home by conducting fundraising and friend-raising projects throughout the year.
- Kerry Oliver Guild (KOG)
History: Kerry Oliver was a dedicated housewife, a mother of several young children, and a friend of Seattle Children's Home. She was one of the first members of an auxiliary which began in 1982. After Kerry Oliver's untimely death in 1983, the members received their charter and named the guild in her honor.
Activities: Over the years, the Kerry Oliver Guild has organized a number of different events, the proceeds of which went directly to Seattle Children's Home. These events included selling tickets for ACT Theatres,
ladie's luncheons and most recently serving as the planning
committee for the Wine Women & Shoes event.

To protect the privacy, safety and security of the clients that
SCH serves, we are not able to offer volunteer opportunities
working directly with our clients. Similarly, we are unable to
accommodate court-ordered community service.
We do use
volunteers to support our special events and we often are able
to accommodate groups of 10-20 people for special work
projects. For more information about these opportunities
