Each year, H.E.R. Shelter community supporters, volunteers and staff hold a Christmasevent to bring light into the lives of the women and children in shelter as well as those within the community. This year, we will be creating a Gifts of Joy Wonderland, where different rooms in a local church will be set up as a “Gift Shop” for residents to shop for themselves and their children for Christmas gifts from community donations. Although spending the Holidays in shelter isn't easy for our residents, we are confident that by having the experience to personally shop for their family will give them a sense of gratitude when their children’s faces light up on Christmas morning!
We are currently for volunteers to assist in preparing the church for the
Gifts of Joy Wonderland as well as helping to ensure the success of resident shoppingdays. For those interested in volunteering at the Gifts of Joy event.
In light of the current COVID 19 precautions,all volunteers and clients will have a temperature screen prior to entering the building. Masks and social distancing will also be required.
