TIME TO HELP’S Annual Christmas Party at Booth Evangeline Salvation Army

Nov 10, 2010 | News | 0 comments




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.   Having a special party in their honor with tons of needed gifts, food, arts and crafts, games, Santa, and more is heart-warming for both residents and volunteers.  

Volunteers will help with decorating, setting up the gift shop, serving food, crafts, games, working in the gift room, manicures, karaoke, and makeovers.
