Christmas Hamper Volunteer Nights
Moms Gone Wild is super excited to be volunteering with the Maple Ridge - Pitt Meadows Christmas Hamper Society this upcoming holiday season!
There are two volunteer shifts:
Wednesday, November 21 6:30pm to 9:00pm
Thursday, November 22 6:30pm to 9:00pm
If you are unfamiliar with the Christmas Hamper, it supports low income families within our community by providing them with a means to have a magical Christmas despite falling upon difficult times. Families receive toys for each of their children (under 18), food for Christmas dinner, and access to Rudolph's Secondhand Shoppe, where they can take what they need from the donated household and clothing items. The children are also invited to participate in a shopping event where they can choose a gift for their parent at no cost.
The people who run this program are real-life heroes. They spend countless hours every year ensuring that no family is left out of the holidays. It truly is a spectacular organization to be a part of. After two and a half hours you will leave the barn with a full heart and a desire to keep on giving.
We will be tasked with sorting various toys in preparation for families to come and "shop" in the barn. This is simple and meaningful work that anyone can do. At this time I am asking that only moms sign up to participate. Please no children as they have a difficult time focusing in a room that truly resembles Santa's Toy Shop.
We will meet in the barns at Albion Fairgrounds (directly across the parking lot from Planet Ice). You can park at the end of the gravel lot. We will put a big sign up out front so you can see which door to enter.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask: email@example.com.
