Holiday Volunteer opportunities

Help make sure that all families who come to SHELTER, Inc. in November and December receive holiday care this year by participating in a holiday event. 

  • Help SHELTER, Inc. families make Thanksgiving as sweet as pumpkin pie by donating non-perishable ingredients and items they need to prepare their own dinner.

    Download our Thanksgiving Food Wishlist . All food items will be accepted through 3:00pm, the last Friday before Thanksgiving.

  • Welcome a previously homeless family into their new home this holiday season by donating much needed new household items. Download our Housewarming Wishlist for a list of items needed.

  • Each year, SHELTER, Inc. and many generous volunteers take on the task of making sure all the families we serve have joyful holidays, complete with gifts and other goodies. We need your help to make sure that all families who come to us in December receive holiday care.
