Christmas Activities and Events - 03. Christmas Assistance Sign-Up's and Coat Distribution

Volunteers are needed to assist with Christmas Sign-Up's & Coat Distribution!

The Salvation Army supplies HUNDREDS of families in need with Christmas assistance including food baskets and toys for children on Christmas morning. Volunteers are needed during Christmas Assistance Sign-Up's to help direct clients when they arrive and assist in completing the assistance application. Volunteers are also needed to help clients shop for coats/keep the tables stocked and organized, and carry any items back to their car. 

Volunteers will fill out the assistance application using a computer, so basic computer knowledge is needed for this activity.

*The last shift on the last day of sign-up's will be assisting with tear-down.
