Thanksgiving “Blessing Bags”
Impact: We bring the HOLIDAYS to those who may not otherwise celebrate such ~ whether by intention, lack of means or circumstance ~ due to homelessness, loneliness, despair, apathy, disabilities, poverty, lack of family, or perceived lack of deservedness. Volunteers will help a less fortunate or disadvantaged child or homeless adult feel that they are deserving and worthy of attention, care and celebration. And, enhance and strengthen their self-worth and dignity.
Volunteer Role & Responsibilities: Volunteers will fill holiday-themed bags with various items, such as socks, granola bar, toothbrush, toothpaste, hand-sanitizer, etc.
Time Commitment: 3 hours (MINIMUM)
Requirements: No special skills or experience required except an open heart and playful spirit!
** PLEASE NOTE **
In our ongoing effort to mitigate the impact of COVID-19, proof of vaccination and mask-wearing is required.
** PLEASE NOTE ** --- Mandatory Participation Fee of $ 5 per person
