Holiday Season Volunteer and In-Kind Gift Needs
From Thanksgiving to the New Year, Project HOME has many opportunities for involvement to help make the holidays a special time for our community. Review the options below and e-mail [email protected] for more details!
Thanksgiving Drives—Help ensure every community member has a Thanksgiving meal this November. We invite you to donate frozen turkeys and/or Thanksgiving turkey baskets (including a frozen turkey and fixings to complete a Thanksgiving meal).
Gift Card Drive—Help formerly homeless and low-income men, women, and children have a happy holiday season. We need donations of $30 gift cards to CVS, Rite-Aid, Walmart, Target or Old Navy to give to Project HOME residents and after-school students. Contact vcoordinator.org if you would like to donate individual cards, “adopt” a residence or program, or would like more information.
Holiday Meal—Host a special holiday party for residents of Project HOME. Volunteers can help celebrate the holidays with Project HOME residents around Christmas time. This is a great one-time opportunity for this group. Help set up, bring and serve food, run activities, and spread holiday cheer to our residents.
Run a Holiday Drive—Volunteers can participate in collecting items for our holiday drive. Items that we are in great need of are:
- Toiletries including shampoo, conditioner, body wash, soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, shaving cream, and razors
- Men's and women's underwear
- Feminine hygiene products
- Hand sanitizer
- Laundry detergent
- Linens—sheets, blankets, pillows, and pillowcases (twin or double size)
- Towels and washcloths
- Shower caps and shower shoes
- New men's and women's warm-weather clothing, such as sweatpants, sweatshirts, coats, hats, scarves, and gloves
