The Education Project Volunteers
Last school year, we were able to provide some holiday cheer to nearly 600 children and youth living in shelters, motels, cars, temporary foster care placements and other temporary situations. Our gift drive is often the only source of holiday gifts for these students during the holiday season.
By having a team of volunteers during our Holiday Drive, The Education Project can continue to provide support and resources to our youth and families.
The Education Project volunteer duties may include:
- Inventory Management: Count, sort and organize donated gifts. Place those gifts in a gift bag marked with the grade and gender of the gift recipient
- Distribution of Supplies: Deliver holiday gift schools, shelters, etc. to be given to students.
- Make a donation: We are always in need of gift cards (Meijer, Target, Big Lots, etc.), school supplies, toiletries (shampoo, soap, deodorant, feminine hygiene products, toothpaste, lotion, etc.) and cash to be used to fund special needs of students that may arise during the year.
Please sign up for an available slot. If you cannot make your assigned time, please be sure to update this signup genius or email [email protected]
Sometimes we need more or less volunteers than originally scheduled. If that occurs we will try to notify you 24 hours in advance.
