Give the gift of joy! Join us in helping families in need for the holidays through our Adopt-A-Family program. We seek to connect families in need of assistance with those within the community who desire to make a difference – helping to make the holiday season a little brighter for our local neighbors in need. Adoptions will be open until Friday, 12/8. Donations must be received by Friday, 12/15. Please contact Sarah Shields at email@example.com with questions or for more information.
Check out all of the exciting volunteer and giving opportunities we have this holiday season!
The holidays are a special time here at Volunteers of America Colorado. You can make a difference in the lives of neighbors who need you this holiday season! Please take a look at our volunteer opportunities below. If you would like to make a direct impact on programs and clients with the greatest need this holiday season, donate today!
Santa Shop for Teens
Every year VOA gives out over 6,000 gifts at the Santa Shop during our Holiday Dinner Basket Give Out and every year we run out of gifts for teenagers first. Even if the magic of Santa is not quite the same for teens, we still want to be able to give them a gift. The families we serve are in need of a little help during the holidays. Along with gifts from Santa, they will receive a Holiday Dinner Basket. You can help by purchasing a gift for teens from our Amazon Wishlist. When using an Amazon Wishlist, the items are shipped right to VOA. If you would like to not use Amazon, items from this list can be purchased elsewhere and you can ship or drop them off at the VOA Admin Building, 2660 Larimer St., Denver, CO 80205 (please send to the attention of Jan Otteman). At this time we are only accepting new items to use as gifts. For more information about VOA's Santa Shop, please email Jan at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for helping make a little holiday magic happen for the teens we serve.
Holiday Meals on Wheels Volunteers
VOAC has a need for volunteer substitute drivers for our Meals on Wheels Program around the holidays. Volunteers will be delivering meals to homebound seniors. Opportunities are available Monday - Saturday. If you are interested in doing a route for the holidays, email email@example.com with the subject line "Holiday Volunteer".
VOA Colorado is thrilled to be selected as one of the Colorado charities to be included in Light the World Giving Machine! This year, our featured program is Camp Postcard!

Grab your shovel and assist limited income seniors this winter! We connect you with a senior in your community to help with snow removal throughout the season. For more information, please contact Jennifer Chokey, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Winter Homeless Needs
Winter can be an extra hard time for those experiencing homelessness. VOAC serves the homeless in many different ways and all of our shelters are in need of items, especially as we head into winter. You can help by purchasing items from our Amazon Wishlist. These items will be given out to clients in need at the VOA Mission, Sinton Sanctuary, Family Motel and Bill Daniels Veteran Services Center. When using an Amazon Wishlist, the items are shipped right to VOA. If you would like to not use Amazon, items from this list can be purchased elsewhere and you can ship or drop them off at the VOA Admin Building, 2660 Larimer St., Denver, CO 80205 (please send to the attention of Jan Otteman). Thank you for supporting our programs that serve the homeless.
