Home > Latest News > Holiday Store 2018: Volunteers and Donations Needed!

Moving in the Spirit’s Holiday Store, our most anticipated volunteer opportunity of the year, will be open December 8-9, 2018!

Our young people earn points throughout the year for keeping their commitments — i.e., being on time for class, dressing in their uniform, and staying focused. At the Holiday Store, they are rewarded with an opportunity to use those points to “buy” gifts for their families. The Store is 100% stocked with donated items and brought to life by caring volunteers.

This festive and meaningful event would not be possible without the generosity of our community. To get involved with the Holiday Store, you can: sign up to volunteer or donate new or gently used items.

Volunteer:

The Holiday Store provides numerous heartwarming opportunities for volunteers to participate and interact directly with our dancers.

Available volunteer positions include:

  • On Friday, December 7: assistance with set-up (decorating, setting up stations, separating donations, etc.)
  • On Saturday, December 8 – Sunday, December 9: assistance with gift-wrapping, helping children as personal  shoppers, check-out help, and clean up

To sign up to volunteer, email jelani@movinginthespirit.org or call 404-624-5295.
