Holiday Volunteering

The holidays are one of the most popular time of the year to volunteer. Local agencies will often receive so many calls they are unable to accommodate all the volunteers. In addition to the traditional forms of volunteering that fill up quickly consider alternative ways you can make a difference this holiday season.

*The Salvation Army- Angel Tree Concierge
Volunteers tend a table near the large tree with Angel tags hanging on it in the Edison Mall. They explain to interested individuals that each angel tag represents a real, live child in our area. The tag is imprinted with the child’s first name, age and gender along with a wish and a need for Christmas gifts. The donor selects a tag, shops for that child and returns the items to The Salvation Army with the tag. We will ensure that those items get to the proper family. Choose a shift between November 14-December 13th at the Edision Mall. Sign up at
