A Sunday Funday Volunteer Holiday Basket Extravaganza
Holiday season is usually a time of festivities and personal time spent with loved ones. For many LGBTQ+ families experiencing food insecurity that is not the case.
That is why the Montrose Center tries to make holidays special LGBTQ+ families and HIV+ clients in need during the holiday season.
These include persons who are chronically unemployed, seniors and disabled individuals surviving on fixed incomes, individuals in transitional housing after fleeing from abusive partners, and persons who are starting over after recovering from addictions.
Each year, the Montrose Center gives out 200 holiday baskets, to those most in need, so that they may enjoy a bountiful holiday feast. This year, we would like to match that number – if not exceed it.
To do that, we need the help of our volunteers. We need help wrapping, packing, and distributing our holiday baskets. This is an extensive process, so having volunteers to help with the process makes it easier to manage. If you are able to assist, please visit our signup link to reserve your shift or if you should have any questions you can contact the volunteer coordinator via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With your help, we can make the 2019 holiday season special for our clients!
We Need Your Help!
Doubling the number of Holiday Baskets is no small task! That is why you are invited to help with the stuffing and dressing of the 200 Holiday Baskets on Sunday, December 8th from 1 – 5 p.m. at the Montrose Center. This Holiday Extravaganza: A Sunday Funday Event will include loads of fun and community.
