Thank you so much for your interest in the Chapel Hill Service League’s 68th Annual Christmas House-a Chapel Hill area tradition since 1950. With the generous support of our community, parents and guardians attend a one-day shopping spree to select new toys, books and coats for their children. Christmas House provides gifts for more than 840 local children, all from families referred by Chapel Hill/Carrboro and Orange County school social workers as being most in need of assistance.

We need volunteers December 5- December 7, in the heart of Chapel Hill. For security reasons, we do not publicize the event location. You will receive the location, parking details and instructions after you have signed up.
