Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us for our Thanksgiving Basket Program.
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 accomplish our holiday programs. Each year, over 800 families receive Thanksgiving baskets full of the ingredients for a homemade Thanksgiving meal.
We would not be able to serve all of these families without volunteer support, time, and commitment!

Please note our volunteer policies:
Our minimum age to volunteer is 10 years old due to safety and liability reasons.
Additionally, the number of volunteers per group will depend on the opportunity, space, and the number of volunteers needed; however, typically the largest group that we can accommodate is 10 volunteers from the same organization/club/company. This is to allow more groups the opportunity to participate.
Volunteer requests are first come, first served – however, priority is given to our partners and donors.
Our volunteer efforts are a collaboration of the community coming together. Groups may work with other volunteers and other groups from the community. We cannot guarantee group exclusivity opportunities.
