2016 Toy Rescue Mission Christmas Volunteer Information

Christmas Distribution Calendar

Dear Volunteer,

Attached is the schedule we will use for serving our Christmas clients. Please note that on each day we are open to the public, you will see an alphabet group such as A-D. That means we are serving families whose last name begins with that letter group. Each family group will have three (3) opportunities to come in and select gifts for their children.

If you are a NEW volunteer this year we ask that you attend Orientation on Nov 29 or Nov 30 at either 10AM, 2PM, 4PM OR 7PM. Orientation is typically less than an hour. PLEASE REGISTER IN ADVANCE.

Volunteer shifts will be from 8AM to 12:30PM or 12PM to 4:30PM. This will allow for overlap and lunches. We can accept partial shifts (2 hours or less) to help with stocking shelves, breaks or clean up.

Maximum number of volunteers per shift will be 14 for any given day. If your group would like to reserve an entire day, please contact us early. Please know that we depend on you when you schedule. If you cannot come or come with less than you sign up for, it creates a customer service issue for our clients. It also interrupts lunches and or breaks.

All volunteers must be at least 16 years old. We limit the ages of minor children to ensure their safety. In some rare circumstances minors may be allowed with a parent if we decide to open evenings for limited appointments.

Bi-lingual volunteers are greatly needed, especially those fluent in Spanish or Russian. Please let us know in advance if you are bi-lingual for scheduling purposes.

As always, for questions, do not hesitate to contact me during office hours at (253) 460-6711 or by email: . I will return all calls and emails as soon as possible. Parking for all volunteers will be at K-Mart one block away near the garden shop. You may elect for street parking if you can find it. No parking at Tacoma Boys as they do tow.


Call us today at (253) 460-6711 if you would like to volunteer.
