    It's good to hear they enjoyed this mornings event. I'm new to the group. I signed up my family, my husband and two boys 8 & 13 and myself are starting a new tradition this year to give and help on the holidays (and through out the year) Not just expect big boxes under the tree. Merry Christmas Everybody. Happy Birthday Jesus.

    I am so sorry I cannot make it because my daught is having us over for her first Christmas at her house that day. I am looking for something for my husband and I for Christmas day. This sounds just like what we are looking for, but just the wrong day. Can you help me find something like it?

    We have sent emails with ALL the details about your volunteer slot at the 8th Annual Celebrate Jesus Christmas event. If you did not receive an email (check your spam folder), then we don't have you in the system.
    There's still time to register, but volunteer opportunities are closing quickly.
    Thanks and God bless,

    Hi Everyone! Lon from the SoupMobile here.
    3 of the 9 volunteer opportunities are already full and closed to registration! EVERYONE wants to come to the Omni this year. Remember, RSVP'ing here does NOT sign you up for the event. We need you to register at our website so we can contact you individually with your assignment, etc.
    www.SoupMobile.org
    Thanks and God bless,
    Lon

    I went to their website and I tried to signup for Banquet Red Carpet volunteer spot with my little brother. I honestly can't afford to do any donation because my student loans increased like crazy! Is there a way to sign up for volunteering without paying a donation?

      Sorry for the confusion, John. If you click on "Custom Donation", you will see that it is a Drop Down list, from $100 to $10.

      December 5, 2012

    • John M.

      I'll try that! Thanks

      1 · December 5, 2012

  • Melinda E.

    Okay I am new to this and I would really like to help out at the Omni? But who would I need to talk to? Or where do i sign up at? If someone can email me @ [masked]. It will be Myself (Melinda), my husband (victor), my two daughters Alexis 18 and Lilianna 13.

    The SoupMobile is looking forward to everyone joining us this year. Please go to www.SoupMobile.org and follow the Celebrate Jesus links (NOT the main Volunteer link at the top of the page) to register. Slots are filling fast, so if you want to do something other than the Morning Red Carpet I suggest you do so quickly. Thanks and God bless.
