SHARE YOUR CHRISTMAS VOLUNTEERS!
This program is so successful because of the dedication and assistance of our wonderful holiday volunteers. Each year a pouring of support comes in from community residents who look to spread cheer throughout the community. SYC is a way to share joy and to care to many in need.
The Volunteer Center is recruiting Volunteers in the following areas:
The Share Your Christmas Program needs volunteers with strong writing abilities. Profile writer volunteers are needed to write brief synopses of the families in need. Complete profiles are sent and printed in The Herald-Sun. You can help in providing holiday cheer to the disadvantaged families referred to the Share Your Christmas program this season.
Administrative and Telephone Volunteers
Volunteers are needed to help with Administrative duties and to man the Share Your Christmas Phone Line. Volunteers would help with filing, email communication and answering the phone lines, taking sponsorship calls and matching sponsors with clients in need. Volunteers can select between two shifts, either 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. With your help we can bring joy to many families this holiday season. (Volunteers are not responsible for soliciting donations or sponsorships, just for matching sponsors who call in to help clients in need.)
Group volunteer shoppers are needed to shop on behalf of families that were not sponsored with funds donated by community donors. Recognized organizations such as universities, churches, civic groups, fraternities, and sororities are needed to shop on behalf of our clients.
Gift Distribution Center Volunteers
Volunteers staff our gift Distribution Center at Northgate Mall. Some Christmas gifts are dropped off at our collection site and are picked up by clients or by social workers for delivery to the clients. Click the link below to register for dates and shifts.
