Christmas Eve Day and Christmas Day 2017
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THERE ARE TWO VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES, CHRISTMAS EVE DAY AND CHRISTMAS DAY - KNOW WHAT YOU ARE SIGNING UP FOR.
Christmas Eve Day and Christmas Day are special days at St. Vincent de Paul. We look forward to serving our guests an "all you can eat" delectable Christmas meal. It will be made extra special because it is a sit-down dinner for our guests. On most days, we serve meals cafeteria style, but we do it differently on special holidays to make it exceptional for our guests. We rely on our precious volunteers to make this happen.
We will also distribute Bags of Hope to our guests following the meal on Christmas Eve Day and Christmas Day and we will need volunteers to hand these out. Of course, we will also follow tradition and have a Christmas store on Christmas Day in the parking lot where guests can choose items they need for free. Volunteers will be needed to help out at the store.
Our volunteers will need to arrive at 10:30 AM and be prepared to stay until 1:00 PM. After the last guest has been served, we invite you to enjoy a nice Christmas meal with us. We ask that you wear long pants (capris for ladies), a shirt with a sleeve and close-toed shoes.
We want as many people as possible to experience volunteerism at St. Vincent de Paul; therefore, we would like to limit groups to filling only six (6) sign-up slots for Christmas Eve Day and Christmas Day. Thank you for your understanding. If this limit creates a problem, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator.
Won't you come and be a part of the St. Vincent de Paul family and provide goodwill and allow our guests to see the face of God in you? It will be a beautiful day that you will never forget!
"Christmas is most truly Christmas when we celebrate it by giving the light of love to those who need it most."
