Thank you for volunteering for Hope for Christmas 2016 at Pleasant Grove Baptist Church! On December 10, we will be serving 250 families in our community, providing them with gifts, food, and fun to help make their Christmas wonderful. This event will take a lot of teamwork, but it will be well worth it to share Christ's love with our community.
We have several volunteer opportunities before the event and many on the actual day of the event. All volunteer opportunities have the dates and times listed beside them. All volunteer opportunities are at Pleasant Grove Baptist Church. You may sign up for more than one position as long as they do not occur at the same time.
Because of the number of children attending the event, all volunteer positions will require a background check. You will receive a separate e-mail with instructions to complete the background check.
You must be at least 16 years of age to fill any individual volunteer position. Anyone under 16 can work alongside parents or older family members. Families who work together during HFC find it to be a very special time and a lasting Christmas memory.
There will be childcare available for volunteers for children birth through 5 years of age. You must pre-register your children to use this service so if you need childcare during your volunteer time on December 10th, please indicate this on your registration. Lunch will be provided for your child if you volunteer over a meal time.
Please purchase a red shirt to wear on December 10th. We will provide elf hats for all volunteers.
We will be sending you updates and other information as plans are finalized.
Thank you again for volunteering! We look forward to working with you in service to our community and sharing Christ's love at Hope for Christmas.
