Volunteer This Holiday Season
There's no better way to celebrate the holidays than by giving back! Join HandsOn Broward in spreading joy this holiday season by volunteering in the community. See the opportunities listed below to connect with ways to serve:
Holiday Meal Packing with Team HOB
Join our HandsOn Broward team on December 17th to pack help 100 meals that will be distributed to residents in the City of Oakland Park. Volunteers will take part in creating holiday greeting cards to include in the meal bags to spread the holiday spirit! By participating in this volunteer opportunity, you will help provide over 100 homebound individuals with a holiday meal so they may celebrate their holidays in ease.
City of Oakland Park Thanksgiving Meal Delivery Drivers
For an extra special 2022 holiday season, HandsOn Broward has partnered with the City of Oakland Park and Farm Share to deliver meals to homebound seniors. On Saturday, December 17th, volunteer drivers are needed to assist with making the deliveries of pre-packaged meals to 100 Oakland Park residents. Our holiday meal delivery drivers play a critical role in delivering meals with a smile to ensure the recipients receive greater access to meals to celebrate the holiday.
HandsOn Holiday Elves
Sponsor a Family: get matched with a personalized wish list for a family and you do the shopping.
In partnership with Mt. Zion Church, HandsOn Broward will be launching our HandsOn Holiday Elves Sponsor a Family Initiative. Volunteers will be matched with a family and will purchase personalized holiday gifts for each member of the family from their list of needs and wants. Our Holiday Elves program is expected to be very popular, so once the first ten families have been adopted you may have to check back for new families to be added. Gifts are dropped off, unwrapped, on select dates between December 6th and 14th.
DIY Volunteer project: No-Sew Stockings
Help HandsOn Broward provide toys and books to local children this holiday season by participating in one of our classic holiday DIY projects: No-Sew Stockings! DIY volunteers will be creating no-sew stockings to fill with small toys and books to help spread the holiday cheer to young children within our Broward County community! These stockings will be distributed amongst local pre-schools and non-profit agencies serving young children.
