2019 Holiday Volunteer Opportunities

Holiday volunteer opportunities

The holiday season is the perfect time to connect with our city and with our community. We have plenty of volunteer opportunities with our affiliates between November and December. For Thanksgiving, find a role delivering meals, packing Thanksgiving goods, and engaging with our neighbors over a meal. For Christmas, find a role serving breakfast and dinner, packing gift bags, and helping at toy shops and events.
