HANDS Holiday Season 2021

Volunteer Tasks

Welcome and thank you for volunteering!

We are grateful for your help providing more than 1,000 holiday meals and giftbags to older Vermonters on Dec. 25, 2021.

This signup is for volunteer activities at the Elks Lodge, 925 North. Ave, Burlington, Dec. 6-25, and at Burlington High School on Dec. 25. (Please use this link to sign up to be a delivery driver on Dec. 25: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b084badad22a2ff2-dec1.)

To keep everyone safe, we require that all adult volunteers are vaccinated or have a negative covid test within 72 hours of any in-person volunteering. All volunteers must wear masks and practice physical distancing. Please review the covid protocol sheet below.

In addition to the in-person volunteering, there are other ways to help, too!

  • Visit the wishlist page at http://handsvt.org/giftbags to see what items are still needed. Make your pledge and deliver the items (wrapped or unwrapped) to the Elks Lodge on designated days.
  • Please consider a monetary donation so that we can maximize the impact of your gift by buying in bulk: http://handsvt.org/make-a-donation
  • Wrap giftbag items at home. You can pick up and drop off items and wrapping paper at the Elks Lodge on Sundays 2-4pm and Tuesdays 5-7pm. Please email Jess at [email protected] to coordinate a pick up day (the sign-up form below is only for giftwrapping at the Elks Lodge).

*City Market member workers can receive credit for volunteer hours.

If you have any questions, please contact Jess Hyman at [email protected] or 802-598-3139.

Thank you for helping us spread the holiday magic to folks who will love it!
