Holiday Volunteering

Thank you so much for your interest in volunteering with us this holiday season.

The holidays are the busiest time of year at Families Forward, and the most popular time of year for volunteering. Our volunteers play a crucial role in helping us to accomplish our holiday programs. Each year, over 700 families are adopted by local donors, and thus provided with gifts for the holidays.

We would not be able to serve all of these families without volunteer support, time, and commitment! The holidays are a fun and festive time at Families Forward. We look forward to having you join us this holiday season.

Volunteer Age Policy

  • Please note our volunteer age policy: our minimum age to volunteer is 10 years old due to safety reasons.
  • For gift preparation volunteers, we ask that volunteers be at least 14 years of age with an adult, as this task is very detail-oriented.

Volunteer Group Size Policy

The number of volunteers per group will depend on the opportunity, space, and the number of volunteers needed.

  • Gift Bag Preparation: Typically, the largest group that we can accommodate is 10 volunteers from the same organization/club.
  • Gift Bag Distribution: Typically, the largest group that we can accommodate is 2-4 volunteers from the same organization/club.
