With the holiday season fast approaching there’s a lot on everyone’s mind. Presents, decorations, dinners, games, cleaning, family, there’s just so much! But this holiday season why not share your good fortune and caring spirit with those who could use some extra love and cheer.
The annual holiday party for shelter residents at The Salvation Army is A Time to Help’s largest volunteer effort and most-cherished activity. Having a special gathering for homeless parents and their children is heart-warming for everyone involved; residents, volunteers and sponsors.
With the help of a generous public, the A Time to Help holiday party provides shelter residents with holiday “shopping” at a gift store sticked with donated clothing, toys and toiletries. While moms receive manicures and chair massages, their children engage in a variety of activities from face painting, games and caricature drawings to music, food and entertainment (and of course, meeting Santa & Mrs. Claus)
A Time to Help is unbelievably grateful for everyone who helped out in 2015. Every month, people from all over the state volunteered their time to improve the lives of others in our beloved city of Detroit. Join us on December 12th as we embrace the holiday spirit and lend a hand and our hearts to the residents of the Salvation Army.
