Adopt A Family Workshop Elves

Our Adopt a Family Holiday project provides clothing, toys, and food to over 450 families in need during the holiday season.  

Volunteer Activities:  As warehouse volunteer elves, you can assist with the intake of gifts, gift wrapping, organizing the warehouse, and distributing gifts to agencies. These volunteers are the muscle behind the Adopt a Family program and have a lot of fun playing the role of "elves" for these families in need.
