VAC Holiday Program
Holiday's are well underway at VAC and we need your help! This year may look a little different but the Holidays must go on and VAC is in need of help to collect gifts from sponsrs and distribute gifts to our participants for our annual Holiday Program. All collection and distribution will take place at Woodcrest Church (2201 W Nifong Blvd, Columbia, MO 65203). While at the church volunteers will help bring in gifts from sponsor's vehicles, organize, and pack the gifts at the church, and take gifts to client's vehicles. Mondays and Tuesdays are sponsor drop off days, Wednesdays will be Agency pick up days, and Thursdays and Fridays are for participants to come pick up their gifts.
Please note we are moving back to a two week period this year in a effort to encourage social distancing and reducing the number of people who will be in the church at all times. The health and well-being of our staff, sponsors, volunteers, and clients are top priority for us. Contactless drop off and pick up of gifts willl be made available to cut down on who enters the church as well. We will ask all volunteers to please wear a mask inside the church at all times and to socially distance as much as possible. Masks will be available at the church and we will have wipes/cleaning sprays available for scheduled wipe downs of all surfaces that may be touched. If you want to wear gloves you are welcome to! A lot of times volunteers will be working in pairs so grab your friend or coworker and come help out together!
Here at VAC we understand that this has been a hard year for so many in our community, state, country, and world. A lot of families are feeling the strain and we are so happy to still be able to offer this program to our community. The Holiday Program is absolutely not possible without you. If you are able to come we would love to have you and look forward to seeing you.
Please reach out to me directly if you have any questions.
