Winter Wishes is Full Steam Ahead

Posted on November 9, 2011. Filed under: Volunteering is Hot! | Tags: |

Some of you might remember a special program we had last year during the holidays. Each holiday we receive many calls from many volunteers with big hearts! Often these folks are looking for a place to volunteer on Thanksgiving or Christmas. You might be surprised to learn these specific opportunities are in short supply. Many shelters and kitchens do not need very many volunteers to help them serve holiday meals and the limited spots fill up fast.

But don’t let that discourage you! There are still plenty of great opportunities to serve during the holidays. Broaden your horizons a little and you will be surprised at what you could do to help.

Create a backpack gift for an at risk youth at HOME Youth and Resource Center. Help Fostering Hope serve a meal the week before Thanksgiving. Help Salem’s Riverfront Carousel prepare for their annual festivities. Find the kid in you and help A.C. Gilbert’s Discovery Village at their New Year’s Eve event.
