Secret Santa

 

Monday, December 4, 2017

This magical event is for Students Only!!

 

The Secret Santa Workshop is an annual event that occurs in early December.  Our volunteer parents turn into elves and transform the gym into a shopping wonderland.  Our children can do some "secret" shopping for their parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, teachers or pets-- really, anyone that they want to give a present to this year.  All items are priced between $1 - $5.   

Every year we have a very special guest.  Santa is at the Workshop to hear the children's wish lists. 

We make sure to buy lots of hats, scarves and gloves so that we have enough for our homeless shoe boxes that we all assemble.  So, feel free to add a homeless man or woman to the list and send in a few extra dollars.

 

Volunteers are the heart of this event. Every year it takes about 75 individual volunteers to pull this miracle together.  Prior to the event, we need help with wrapping, decorating and set-up, and catering for the volunteers.  The day of the event we need cashiers, wrappers, personal shoppers, table hosts and a clean-up crew. Login to the scheduling system to volunteer.
