MORE THAN A BED

More Than a Bed’s Christmas Event is fast approaching!!! The event will be held on Saturday December 4, 2021 from 10am - 2pm. We are asking that all volunteers plan on arriving to the warehouse by 9am. It’ll be great if you can stay the entire time, but if not, we can accommodate shifts. Please be clear if you need a shift.

We need volunteers in the following areas:

Check-in & check-out - Ensure the families are only present for their allotted times. We will not be able to let families in until the previous time slot’s families have departed. Families should check out with you and when they do, they can choose a family gift - handmade quilt or handmade stocking. Please indicate their choice on the check-in/out paperwork you will receive. We will need a couple of families to agree to have their photos taken so the vendor who provided the handmade goodies can see their excitement.

Games attendants - Teach the kiddos how to play the game you are overseeing; make sure all kiddos can play. Give each child a sticker once they complete your game.

Kitchen - Your role is to ensure the families in attendance all receive the food/ snacks being offered (to be determined).

New toys - All children in attendance can pick out a toy appropriate for their age. Gift attendants will receive the RSVP list of all families. Please make sure you check off all of the families and their children once they receive a gift. Toys will be displayed for each child’s age; it's very important an 8-year-old boy takes a gift from the 8-year-old table. If a child has a developmental delay, they may choose a toy appropriate for their developmental age.

Santa line - Families will first take a photo with a dry erase board - will need their name legibly written on it, then take the dry erase board away. The photographer will take 2-3 photos of each family.

Security outside - Families will need guidance on where to park. They can park next to the warehouse (you will have to be very strategic so they are able to leave to allow the next timeframe to park).

About MORE THAN A BED

Mission Statement

More Than a Bed's mission is to provide essential items to foster, kinship, and adoptive families for the children in their homes because every child deserves to be valued.

Description

More Than a Bed was established in September 2014. We are a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization and are a Christian resource center for foster and adoptive families. Our vision is to inspire the community to get involved in the life of a foster child and support the family providing care. To encourage new families to be licensed and existing families to remain licensed with the goal of every child in Pima County and its surrounding areas to have a safe place to call home.
In our 5,000 sq ft warehouse we provide clothing, shoes, bedding, baby items, school items, books, cribs, toys, household items for the families to come in and shop for free for the items they need to provide for the child/children placed in their care. Through grants we purchase items much needed including cribs, twin and toddler beds, bunk beds, diapers and underwear. We believe every child should feel valued, so by helping the families get the essential needs for the children we hope we are accomplishing this.
