GRACE Christmas Cottage Volunteering
Christmas Cottage is a GRACE program that provides new, unwrapped gifts to families facing financial hardship due to limited income or recent emergency. Each qualified family is given a hypothetical “budget” that allows the parents to “purchase” donated toys, home goods and appliances in a private, store-like setting. This unique approach allows families to budget their resources and select unique presents while preserving the family’s dignity. Over 2,700 individuals and families are served at Christmas Cottage each holiday season.
How you can Volunteer:
- Assist clients, price items and help with maintenance of Cottage (Spanish-speaking volunteers are always needed)
- Bake cookies for families (we need twelve dozen daily!)
- Clean, unpack and sort Christmas Cottage after closing
- Pick up toys
- Prepare Christmas Cottage by organizing, stocking or decorating Cottage
