A woman volunteering with a group of children who are coloring

As a volunteer for The Christmas Box International, you are supporting children, teens, and young adults who have experienced abuse, neglect, trafficking, or homelessness. Whether you volunteer for a one-time project or become a regular volunteer at one of our emergency shelters, we appreciate the time and effort you are giving to make a difference in the lives of vulnerable youth.

If you or your volunteer group are interested in volunteering at the Salt Lake, Ogden, or Moab Christmas Box House, please click here and fill out our information form.

US Dollars

Host a Fundraiser

To arrange a fundraiser, please get in touch with our Executive Director at celeste@thechristmasbox.org. Here are some ideas for hosting your fundraiser.

  • Share your dedication to helping children with customers and clients by dedicating a day where a portion of your sales goes to support these children.
  • Challenge your friends, family, or coworkers to meet a goal with a fundraiser event. This could be anything from a 5K Run with your neighborhood to a formal ticketed dinner.
  • Sponsor an event such as our Annual Gala or Annual Let’s Do Holiday Lunch. Share your name, brand, and goodwill with the community by helping sponsor an event and create awareness of your brand to hundreds of people.

Plan/Fund a Shelter Project

After two decades, our emergency shelters in Moab, Salt Lake, and Ogden, Utah need some LOVE, and we really LOVE when business groups get involved! So many companies use their VTO (Volunteer Time Off) to help us “Fix Our Shelters.” Click here to see who has been involved so far and how you can help! Or email Kristin Jensen at kristin@thechristmasbox.org to learn more!

 

Women working with donations

Host a Donation Drive

Work with your family, friends, and community to organize a drive for needed items at our Christmas Box Houses and in our Christmas Box Resource Rooms. We need volunteers to collect NEW items year-round and deliver them to one of our Christmas Box House locations. Our most needed items are constantly changing, and we encourage you to visit our Wish Lists to view our most current needs.
