Volunteer to Deliver a Holiday Gift Bag!
The Beach Cities Holiday Gift Bag program gives more than 250 bags to seniors filled with essential supplies.
Thank you for your interest in spreading cheer this holiday season to a senior in our beach cities community.
We estimate that Holiday Gift Bags will be ready for delivery by December 5th, 2017.
Volunteers will be notified the week before about scheduling pick up of their bags. The bag will include the client's information for the volunteer to call and schedule a time to deliver the bag to our client. Volunteers spend time with the client for a visit when they deliver the bag.
All bags should be delivered to the client no later than December 22nd, 2017.
How did you hear about this opportunity?
Please be as specific as possible to help us with future outreach efforts.
