Each year, Rainbow Days provides stockings filled with fun items and essential necessities to homeless children and families in the Dallas area. This year our goal is to provide these items to over 1,000 children, youth and parents! We need YOUR HELP to make the holidays bright for these special children and families.
The safety of the children and families we serve is always our top priority; therefore, we have decided to forgo our annual celebratory event. However, we want to make sure the children and families know we are thinking of and care about each of them during this difficult time. We need your help to let homeless families know, especially now, that we haven't forgotten them this holiday season.
Volunteers are needed to help transport stockings to the site where they will be organized and built, organize and build stockings and transport stockings to the 20+ partnering shelters and transitional living sites.
ALL Volunteers are required to complete our online Volunteer Application (if you have not already completed one within the last 18 months) which can be found at: http://rainbowdays.org/more-ways-to-help/volunteer/volunteer-application/. Please note, the deadline for completing your Volunteer Application is December 6. Note: A background check is not required for these volunteer opportunities because we will not be serving the children directly.
If group(s) have reserved spaces, please be sure to register only for slots that you can fill and be sure to include your specific corporate/community group (i.e. YMSL - Plano, NCL - Turtle Creek, or Individual Volunteer) to ensure hours are credited to the appropriate team. If you are a parent signing up with a child please reserve 2 slots and add your childs name to the sign up. We can not add additional slots to adhere to social distancing guidelines.
