Adopt a Family Workshop Elves Needed

Save to Favorites

Volunteer Center of Santa Cruz County



Are you looking for an easy way to get into the holiday spirit this year? During this most unprecedented of holidays in the middle of a pandemic, this year may feel a little bit different. You can still be a part of bringing holiday joy to a family in need! Our Adopt a Family program helps over 400 local families have a wonderful Christmas season!

We are in need of warehouse elves to help with intake of donations, sorting donations, and making sure that gifts make it into the hands of the agencies that will be delivering holiday packages to families this year.

Tasks for outdoor volunteers include:

lifting gifts and bringing them from donor cars into the warehouse

greeting donors

Tasks for indoor volunteers include:

labeling or wrapping gifts

taking inventory of items donated



We recommend this project for kids over 10 - as it is sometimes difficult for younger kids to spend so much time in the warehouse. Our shifts are a bit longer than usual this year so that we can minimize the number of volunteers coming through the warehouse and keep everyone protected from COVID.

Please note: we are still looking for a location for the donation center - it will likely either be in Scotts Valley or Watsonville.
