Volunteer Center of Santa Cruz County



Join us for Family Volunteer Day to bring cheer to our annual Adopt A Family project.

The Adopt A Family project provides food, clothing and toys to 450 of Santa Cruz County's neediest families during the holiday season. This year we are supporting 100 families that have been impacted by the CZU Fires, and every family is facing special circumstances. Every year approximately 25 families on our list go un-adopted, and we depend on our on donations from our Stars project to fill the need. We donate any extra gifts we recieve to local organizations that are serving families in need.

Here's where you come in....we need your help to create wishing star ornaments or decorating gift bags.

Gift Bags - you pick up blank bags (or get some blank paper gift bags or bakery bags) and decorate them with holiday drawings and designs. These personalized bags ensure that the families receiving the gifts from the program know that they are getting gifts from our community of caring people, and brining cheer to people in need!

Express interest using the button below and we will send you the detailed instructions and you can sign up to pick up supplies.

Stars - Use our template to cut out stars from supplies you pick up at our office (or use your own supplies). Decorate the stars and write gift requests on them from our wish list. When done, drop them off at our office, or if you have a business you can display them for your customers/employees.
