Ways to Volunteer for Holiday Baskets

It takes a village to make
Holiday Baskets possible!

Join our volunteer team!

Individual Volunteering

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Holiday Baskets!  The Holiday Baskets 2019 Individual Application will be available November 1, 2019.  Individuals who are part of a group four or fewer must complete the Individual Application, which includes a waiver.  This will make the full schedule of volunteer opportunities available to you and you will be able to sign up for the shifts that you can commit to.

Group Volunteering

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with your group of 5 or more! Our Holiday Baskets sponsors receive priority group volunteering scheduling. The 2019 Holiday Baskets Group Application is available now.

Youth Volunteering

CRC youth and the incredible impact they can have in their community. Holiday Baskets is a rewarding and fun way to get involved! In order to create the safest experience for our youth volunteers, we have a limited number of spots available to our younger philanthropists and have a policy in place outlining age requirements.


Age 6-10 may volunteer with a parent (1 to 1 ratio) and a signed parent waiver
Age 11-13 may volunteer with an adult at a 1 adult to 5 youth ratio and a signed parent waiver
Age 14-17 may volunteer as an individual with a signed parent waiver
Groups aged 14-17 need to have a minimum 1 responsible adult overseeing them and must bring signed parent waivers.


Groups of younger volunteers may inquire about special opportunities for shorter volunteer slots, and for tours of Holiday Baskets. There are limited spaces for these. We encourage groups to consider supporting Holiday Baskets by hosting a drive or fundraising event.

Other Ways to Make a Difference

Holiday Baskets needs over 50 tons of food, 6,000 toys, 6,500 coats and more to serve over 6,000 people in need. This year, will you consider joining us as a fundraising partner or sponsor to help ensure that every family can receive a complete Holiday Basket?
