Come and help spread holiday joy! We have a lot to organize as we match up our Adopt-a-Family sponsors with families in need. Support our Adopt-a-Family campaign this holiday season by assisting a couple different ways:

  • greet sponsors as they drop off,
  • decorate our space for holiday cheer
  • sort gifts by family into bags if needed
  • store bags into pre-assigned rooms and
  • wrap any presents that may need it

December 8-12, Wednesday through Sunday Hang out at our main office anytime between 8a-6p to help unload and organize gifts as sponsors drop them off. There will be shifts: We want to have 2 -4 volunteers per shift (morning: 8:30-12:00, afternoon: late afternoon/evening 3:00-6:00).

Must have completed COVID-19 vaccination and/or will have completed the vaccine before starting; FamilyWise can provide vaccination resources if needed. Masks required in our facility.

Give our Volunteer Coordinator a call at 612-877-7826 or to get involved!

About FamilyWise


3036 University Avenue SE, Minneapolis, MN 55414, US

Mission Statement

Strengthening Families by Promoting the Safety, Stability, and Well-being of Children.


FamilyWise is a local nonprofit that helps our community’s most vulnerable children and families. Many of these families come to us with a history of poverty, domestic violence and homelessness. Your volunteering and financial support helps break this cycle of despair and gives them hope for a better future.

Our goal is to promote social change by strengthening families and the community through programs that:

  • Educate parents on skills needed to lead stable lives and provide safe homes for their children.
  • Empower families to achieve self-sufficiency and to advocate for themselves and their children.
  • Enrich the lives of children, youth and families, enabling them to lead healthy, productive family lifestyles.

"Volunteering at FamilyWise opened my eyes to a whole new world where children and families from all walks of life are treated with dignity and respect. It made me feel good to know that I was helping contribute in a meaningful way to the greater good."
