Annual Christmas Party – A Time to Help

Dec 3, 2012 | News | 0 comments

Date/Time: Dec 8, 2012  at 8:00 AM  –  12:30 PM

Location: Booth Evangeline Salvation Army | 20775 Pembroke Avenue |   Detroit, MI 48219

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 annual Adopt a Shelter as successful as last year’s.  Volunteers will help in decorating, setting up the gift shop, serving food, crafts and games. 

We are in need of donations of new, UNWRAPPED toys, clothes and hygiene kit items.    We are asking each volunteer to bring at least 1 gift to include in our gift shop.   The gifts you purchase at this site can be shipped directly to the Booth Evangeline Shelter.  You are free to purchase your own gifts anywhere as well.   

Having a special party in their honor – with tons of needed gifts, foods that residents never usually are treated to and sharing a day of crafts, dance, manicures, music and camaraderie is heart-warming for both residents and volunteers.    

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 and volunteers, we need help in our efforts to find donations of food including bagels, donuts, milk, orange juice and/or other breakfast confections for the morning meal. 

If you are able to provide any of the food donations listed above, please e-mail Project Coordinator, Rachael Williams, at 

We hope you can join us to bring some holiday joy to these Detroitcitizens!
