Children's Home - Kinship Christmas Party

  • Dec 14, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

People have always cared for their relatives' children; however, most have done so with little formal help. Lack of assistance may lead to family stress that impacts the entire family. The Kinship Care program at The Children's Home is intended to provide support to relative caregivers by helping families access necessary services, expanding family support systems, and ultimately reducing stress to promote family stability.

How we will LEND A HAND

We are honored to have been invited to help at the Christmas party for the Kinship Care program! They expect about 200 guests, so they need us to help wherever needed. We will probably help serve lunch, and help with the different children's activity areas. Santa will be there (they're still looking for a Santa!), and the children will have gifts to open. Our group always enjoys the monthly events, so this should be spectacular!


11am - 2pm - Please be on time and plan to stay the entire time.

What to bring:

•  Please wear Christmas attire if possible

•  If it's your first time volunteering with them, please print, sign, and bring the Children's Home volunteer form with you:

•  A warm smile!

Other Important Information:

Unfortunately children are not allowed to participate in this event (per The Children's Home).

Additional information about Lend a Hand events, such as RSVPing, bringing guests, waiting lists, and last-minute dropouts is located on the 'About' page, please familiarize yourself with our current policies and procedures:

Join us and open your heart to LEND A HAND!

Please consider this seriously before you RSVP, it is very important that we have an accurate count a couple of days in advance to provide to the organization. Last-minute drop-outs are difficult to replace and reflect badly on our organization.

How 'The Children's Home' benefits our community

The Children's Home provides a safe haven for children who have suffered abuse, neglect or abandonment. Children need love. Families need security. That's why they are charged with being the source of strength and opportunity for children and families. Through their nationally recognized residential treatment program to their Family Support and Resource Centers, they have impacted the lives of many who rely on support and care during times of uncertainty. Over the years, they have helped more than 6,000 children realize their dream of a family, and they have cared for more than 25,000 children in the community.

    Wow, where do I begin? Our volunteers helped out so much, even when it became chaotic! Thank you so much for doing whatever became necessary to make it a successful event! They were so appreciative! And I don't even know how to express how thankful I (along TCH and 200 children and families) am thankful for our very own Santa! Jurgens did a great job and thanks so much to Kris for helping prepare Santa for the kids and their questions! It just would not have been the same without Santa!

    Hi team. I was just asked by The Children's Home for a count and I let them know 7 volunteers would be there. Please check your schedule and if you cannot make it change your RSVP now, not at the last minute when it's difficult to find replacements. I am planning to stop by after volunteering at Metro Min. Lend a Hand's very own Santa will be dropping in as well! I look forward to seeing you there!

    Would love to but have a prior commitment. Have fun with the kiddies!

    I have committed to volunteering at Metro Min that morning, so I am not sure if I will be able to make this event.
