Thousands of toys are provided by The Virginian-Pilot Joy Fund to the Salvation Army's Holiday Assistance program. These toys are distributed by volunteers (that's you) to local disadvantaged families from the Christmas Depot. Please bring your Spartan Spirit and join us in the distribution of these toys. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old. Please let us know if you can volunteer with us by registering for this event.
We will be assigned to be runners and restockers, escorts (assisting families to their cars), sorters or shoppers.
When: Friday, December 16 @ 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., or 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Where: 4725 Virginia Beach Boulevard, 23452 (formerly HQ – now called Towne Center Market Place). Parking is ample, but please park away from the building so that there's plenty of parking available close to the building for the recipients.
Leave personal belongings at home or locked in your car. Please arrive 5-10 minutes prior to your shift to allow time to check in, write your name tag, and to find a seat for your brief orientation. During orientation, you’ll learn about the tasks at hand and then you’ll decide what task suits you.
Dress: This location is not heated, so the temperature inside will be similar to the outside temperature. Dress comfortably for this warehouse environment, and feel free to be festive! Sneakers, boots and jeans all are appropriate. You may want some gloves and a hat 'just in case.'
Refreshments: Hot and cold refreshments are available throughout each shift. Feel free to take a break whenever necessary in the volunteer break area in rear corner of the Depot - just look for the area that's curtained off. Portable restrooms are available on-site.
Please contact Gordon Bosch at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Our Club's goal is to encourage and strengthen the Spartan Spirit in Hampton Roads through activities, events, recruitment, networking, social media and involvement in the Michigan State Alumni Association. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or suggestions. Go Green! Go White! Go State!
