Activities & Things to do Around the Holidays
The holidays are a great time for volunteering, but sometimes it is difficult to find an opportunity, since so many want to give back during the holiday season. This is where we come in- we update this page with all of the holiday volunteering and donation opportunities that have been posted on our site! If you see an opportunity that interests you, click on the name of the opportunity to "sign up" or "express interest"! The organisation will contact you with more information.
