Committees

Mikayla’s Grace is a 501c3 non-profit run solely by volunteers.  We have several committees which are led by volunteers, but there are hundreds of other individuals who volunteer to make handmade items, assemble donations at our Work Days, and facilitate our events.

These are just a few of the people who make our mission possible.

Regional Committees

In order to serve more small communities outside of the Madison area, we have Regional Committees run by parent volunteers.  These Committees will help serve different areas of need in their local communities throughout Wisconsin as well as coordinate donations of our items to their local hospitals and clinics.  If you are interested in starting a Regional Committee in your community or serving on an existing committee please contact us.

Janesville (St. Mary’s Janesville & Mercy Hospital) – Chair: Gina Hillmann

Work Day Committee

The individuals on this committee help prepare for our Work Days which are held each January and June.  The Work Days are an opportunity for any of our supporters to come and help assemble the donations which are given to local hospitals. The committee members help organize and lead specific areas of the Work Days.
