A Volunteer Driven Organization

Volunteer Positions Available

Setup Volunteers:

This shift requires quite a bit of heavy lifting. Volunteers will be asked to help move chairs, set-up tables and
move heavy boxes of toys coming out of storage for sorting later in the week. This is the first shift to get the toy drive location set-up and ready for the upcoming week. 

Distribution Volunteers:

This is where the majority of volunteers are needed! Shifts are approximately 3 hours long during our two days of distribution annually. Volunteers are partnered with a parent/guardian and help individuals “shop” and bag up their selected toys/gifts. Additional tasks could include sorting toys that arrive late, restocking tables as toys are depleted, and prebagging gifts for those individuals who choose to pick-up toys that are preselected for them.

Registration Volunteers:

Volunteers register help answer questions and help individuals who call in through the online registration process. After registering the family, you will provide the parent/guardian with a scheduled date and time that are invited to attend the distribution facility to select toys/gifts for their child(ren).

Sub-Committee Volunteers:

Sub-committee volunteers take on specific roles in the organization mainly during the months leading up to the toy drive. They take on roles coordinating certain area with help and direction from a board member. These jobs include: toy collection, volunteer management, registration management, special, shopping, web administration, and much more.
