Adopting homeless children and their parents living in shelters for one day is one of Time to Help’s most cherished activities. The residents of the shelters are enormously touched by the generosity of volunteers and sponsors. Help make the 19th annual Adopt-a-Shelter as successful as last year’s.
Having a special party in their honor- with tons of needed gifts, foods that residents never usually are treated to such as cookies, cakes, donuts, bagels, & pizza’s – and sharing a day of crafts, dance, manicures, music and camaraderie is heart-warning for both residents and volunteers.
Volunteers will help in decorating, setting up the gift shop, serving food, crafts and games. We are also in need of donations of new, unwrapped toys, clothes and toiletry items for each site. Please visit volunteerimpact.org for a list of items needed as we get closer to the date of the party. WE ASK EACH VOLUNTEER TO BRING AT LEAST ONE UNWRAPPED GIFT FOR A CHILD.
Students, there is still time to organize a drive for gifts in your class or school, or show your parents how to put one together at their offices.
Vendors, if you would like to help out our effort, we need food donations, including drinks, pitas, cake, bagels, donuts, coffee, milk, orange juice and/or other breakfast confections for the morning meal. See list of donations and activities below.
If you can bring manicuring supplies, need a place to drop of donations, or have questions, please contact us at mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you help us bring some holiday joy to these Detroit Citizens!
