2020 Holiday Volunteer Opportunities

2020 HOLIDAY OPPORTUNITIES

Thank you to all the volunteers who served our affiliates this holiday season! We are so thankful for your time and generosity!

 

We have plenty of ways you can serve this holiday season (in person and virtually) to support neighbors in need! Sign up to volunteer, and bring hope and renewal to our neighbors!

Want to volunteer with your church? If you're a congregant with one of our church partners, more volunteer opportunities will be shared by the churches.


His Toy Store Reimagined

 

For over 20 years, His Toy Store has been our annual Christmas outreach to serve families in need across New York City. This year, we *reimagined* His Toy Store as a holiday fund that will give grants directly to our affiliates, so they can provide families with toys and basic needs (e.g. food, grocery cards, hygiene items).

As part of His Toy Store Reimagined, our affiliates also need volunteers to bring holiday joy throughout Thanksgiving and Christmas to distribute toys, daily essentials, and more in creative ways. Volunteer today!
