Harriet Tubman – Party in a Box

November 28 @ 7:00 am - 3:00 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.  

Impact of the volunteer: 

You will drop off a Party in a Box. The residents and staff at Harriet Tubman Shelter will use the decorations you provide to make their space merry and bright for the holiday season. These decorations will help us spread some holiday joy among our most vulnerable clients at Catholic Charities.
