Santa's Workshop @ the YWCA

Saturday, December 7th, 2019 from 8:30am to 12:00pm


Santa’s Workshop is held each year at the YWCA to help families living in area homeless shelters, transitional housing programs or receiving YW services, to have a happy holiday season. Children have an opportunity to make gifts that they can give to moms, teachers, friends and others in their life circle and can even have their picture taken with Santa.  Parents are able to “shop” (everything is free) for gifts to give their children. 

This year's event will be held on Saturday, December 7th from 9 - 12 pm.   See the following list of various volunteer opportunities.  We hope you find the perfect fit for you and/or your organization!  All Volunteers will report at 8:00 am on December 7th.
