It's time again to sign up for volunteering at the Salvation Army for the
Santa's Toy Shop Program. This year, we are going to go on FRIDAY, DEC 21 for the 9:00AM - 1:00pm shift (at the Maplewood Salvation Army - 2080 Woodlynn Ave. Maplewood, 55109), for whomever wants to come! I need to round up 30 people to help out during this time.
Wear comfortable clothing and don't bring valuables. Snacks/drinks/lunch will be provided for free.
The Christmas Toy Shop Program houses all of the toys that are donated by the public at different stores. This program invites parents in need to select
gifts/toys for their children for the holidays. As a volunteer on this day, you
can either choose to help parents select toys for their children, help set up
the tables with toys (making sure that the tables are always filled with toys,
helping parents/volunteers find toys) or other jobs like check people in, carry
bags out to cars, etc. *They also usually need interpreters - Spanish, Hmong, Sign Language, etc.*
This is a great opportunity; normally everyone who participates loves it! Kids
can volunteer if they are older than 12 and supervised by an adult (one child
to one adult).
This is a great experience to "give back" to the community. You will definitely make a difference!
