At Holiday Helpers we like to think of our dedicated volunteers as “Elves”

Spreading Christmas joy is all about team work and fun. It is also hard work, which is why our Holiday Helpers Elves work in shifts out of the Holiday Helpers Warehouse.

 

90% of our volunteer shifts are now booked!

The response to volunteer at Santa's Warehouse has been overwhelming, as such the maxium size group you can book is 10.  Please ensure you do not include children 14 and under in your booking if they are part of your group.  If you would like to book a group larger than 10, please contact me directly at sharon@holidayhelpers.org

Can I bring my children?

Often parents want to bring their children to demonstrate the importance of volunteering. The warehouse is a very busy place and can be unsafe if your children are not constantly supervised which is hard to do if you’ve signed up for a specific volunteer tasks.

Please keep in mind:

  • Our warehouse is always bustling with activity and things can get very hectic
  • Gift wrapping shifts are 4 hours long and lots of work needs to be done during that time
  • If your child is 14 or under, we require you to bring another responsible adult who can take charge while you work
  • When registering to volunteer as a family, register ONLY the adults
