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. Please continue to check back after that date as there will be more families added to the list as we receive additional requests. Please contact Becca Eddy at email@example.com for more information.
Check out all of the exciting volunteer and giving opportunities we have this holiday season!
Although our holiday projects might look a little different in order to keep everyone safe, we still are committed to making sure our clients can celebrate and receive services. We need your help to do this! Please take a look at our volunteer opportunities below. Spaces are limited but we can always use more people to donate to our Adopt-a-Family and Gift Card Programs.
Did you know that by choosing to support Volunteers of America Colorado on AmazonSmile, Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase price to our organization's many helpful programs? This is a perfect opportunity to holiday shop for loved ones while supporting Colorado's most vulnerable groups. We call that a win-win!
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. Please contact Kacey Barnhart firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
Become a Snow Buddy
We need volunteers to help their Senior Neighbors by becoming a Snow Buddy. Snow Buddy volunteers are matched with a senior in their neighborhood and shovel the snow when we get 2" or more. Grab your shovel and assist limited-income seniors this winter! Additional training and paperwork are required for this position. Contact Arthur Knoer email@example.com for more information.
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 teen 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 80250 (please send to the attention of Bradley Craddock). At this time we are only accepting new items to use as gifts. For more information about VOA's Santa Shop, please email Bradley at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for helping make a little holiday magic happen for the teens we serve.
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 80250 (please send to the attention of Bradley Craddock). For more information about VOA's Santa Shop, please email Bradley at email@example.com. Thank you for supporting our programs that serve the homeless.
