Children receive bicycles through our annual Christmas gift program


The Oakland Catholic Worker coordinates a Christmas gift program that provides gifts for around 250 people in need (mostly children) every year. Volunteers are needed to call eligible families to schedule interviews about what they want for Christmas, and to and remind them to pick up their gifts.

Most families will speak Spanish or Cantonese, so volunteers should be proficient enough to schedule appointments in one of those languages. Phone and internet access are necessary, but volunteers can work from home.

Calls will take place from October 4th-14th, and from December 5th-12th.
