10/30/2020 Update 

The Christmas Store is scheduled for Saturday, December 12. As you might recall, we were hoping to open volunteer registration on November 1st.  However,  we have decided to push the date back to account for additional planning.  Volunteer registration will now open on November 10th at 8 am.

It’s important to note that we will still need volunteers, but the number of roles will be significantly reduced in order to serve as many shoppers as possible. At this point, we will have the following volunteer roles available:

  1. Christmas Decorating at OCC (opportunity available after Thanksgiving!)  
  2. Clean Up & Break Down
  3. Parking Lot
  4. Runners
  5. Shuttle Drivers
  6. Shopper Registration – Spanish Speaking & English Speaking
  7. Shopper Helpers – Spanish Speaking & English Speaking
  8. Store Set up (prior to the day of the Christmas Store)

In order to adhere to local and state guidelines, we will need to limit the number of people on site. As previously mentioned, these volunteer roles will not be available this year:

  1. Child Care
  2. Gift Bag Host
  3. Gift Wrap
  4. Shopper Hospitality Room
  5. Stocking Stuffer Cashier
  6. Upper Leven and Main Level Quality Control
  7. Volunteer Check In
  8. Volunteer Hospitality

Individuals, groups and families are invited to participate in the days and weeks leading up to the event and at the store itself. Volunteer registration will open on November 10th.  For questions, please contact Mindy Inman, Director of Volunteer Services at minman@outreachcommin.org or by phone at 630.682.1910
