Holiday Volunteer Guide

It’s that time of the year again!

The Holiday Guide to Giving and Volunteering has landed and, as always, it’s packed with opportunities for you to help people in need through our local organizations.  Thank you to our generous sponsors, Federal Savings Bank and Hawthorn Creative!

  • View the guide as a searchable e-magazine.
  • View date-specific opportunities on the calendar.
  • View featured opportunities online.

Tips for using this guide

  • Use the Quick Finder on page 5 to quickly find categories of need.
  • Form a group of friends or coworkers to “adopt” a family or individual.
  • Start a collection drive and list items needed and the recipient agency.
  • Take up a collection to purchase much-needed gift certificates or vouchers.
  • Remember: Most agencies need assistance prior to the holiday, not the day of.
