Fortitude Housing – Party in a Box

November 29 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Spread holiday cheer to some of our most marginalized neighbors with a Party in a Box! Volunteers will create holiday decorations and drop them off at a program site to help our programs make their spaces merry and bright for the holiday season. Suggested decorations include garlands, wreaths, plastic lights, red and green disposable tablecloths, candy canes, or any other creative ideas you may have. We do ask that you refrain from bringing glass items, sharp objects, candles, or any food containing nuts.
