Montrose Center: Sunday Funday Volunteer Holiday Basket Extravaganza

December 8, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Holiday season is usually a time of festivities and personal time spent with loved ones. For many LGBTQ+ families experiencing food insecurity that is not the case.

That is why the Montrose Center tries to make holidays special LGBTQ+ families and HIV+ clients in need during the holiday season.

These include persons who are chronically unemployed, seniors and disabled individuals surviving on fixed incomes, individuals in transitional housing after fleeing from abusive partners, and persons who are starting over after recovering from addictions.

Each year, the Montrose Center gives out 200 holiday baskets, to those most in need, so that they may enjoy a bountiful holiday feast. This year, we would like to match that number, if not exceed it.
To do that, we need the help of our volunteers. We need help wrapping, packing, and distributing our holiday baskets. This is an extensive process, so having volunteers to help with the process makes it easier to manage. If you are able to assist, please visit our signup link to reserve your shift https://montrosecenter.galaxydigital.com/need/detail/?need_id=459772 or if you should have any questions you can contact the volunteer coordinator via email at volunteer@montrosecenter.org.

With your help, we can make the 2019 holiday season special for our clients!
