Special Events - Kids Holiday Shopping Spree

Help make this holiday a joyous experience for a low-income child. Volunteers are needed for an annual shopping trip hosted by Boise Parks and Recreation.

Approximately 180 kids from after-school programs operated by Boise Parks and Recreation have been selected by school counselors to participate in the program. The youth, age 6-12, will receive a gift card to buy clothes, toys and toiletries. Volunteers help the children shop for Christmas, and help guide them in making appropriate purchasing decisions.

The event takes place on Friday, December 20, 2019. Participants are able to volunteer for both the first and second shift if they desire.

Volunteers must review the City of Boise Volunteer Handbook to participate.
