Volunteer in Sacramento: Holiday Gift Wrapping with Chicas Latinas

JOChristmasGifts

The end of the year has finally presented itself and calls for Chicas Latinas de Sacramento to help wrap Christmas gifts for the local organization called A Christmas Promise, on Sunday December 7th 2014 at The North Pole (1428 Howe Avenue Sacramento, CA 95825).

Each year, A Christmas Promise receives approximately 250 “Dear Santa” Letters from disadvantaged children acquired from church organizations, referral agencies, teacher and social workers in the Sacramento region.

kids

By granting the wishes of these children, A Christmas Promise- with the help of Chicas Latinas- Santa is sent to the homes of the children on Christmas Eve.

To be able to make this magic happen we will need 10 Chicas volunteers, or Santa’s helpers, to come and help wrap gifts (with a max of 16 volunteers)!

Additional help can always be used for delivery of gifts on Christmas Eve. For those interested in learning more on this or gift wrapping, please fill out the contact form below to get a head count and we’ll be sure to contact you with additional information!

RVSP & Connect on FB: Give to the Homeless at Cesar Chavez Park – Holiday Edition!

As temperatures begin to dip, we will be collecting donations for warm wearable clothing for men, women and children. We especially encourage men to clean out your closets as there are more men on the street than women. We’re also seeking socks and toiletries, such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, etc.

IMG_6092

According to the Sacramento Housing & Redevelopment Agency, the homeless population in Sacramento has reached over 2,500 as of 2013 – A statistic that drives Chicas Latinas more than ever to continue giving back.

Donations will be accepted the morning of November 30th (you will see us set up with folding tables). Fill out the form to contact and/or arrange to donate prior: http://bit.ly/ChicasFeedSacHomeless

* Chicas Latinas members will also be meeting on Nov. 26th at Capsity to prepare Thanksgiving meals to be distributed by CAFFE Members on Thanksgiving day!
