Seasonal and Holiday Volunteering

Thank you for wanting to share the love this holiday season! Below you’ll find our remaining holiday needs! Merry Christmas!

Christmas Meals

We are in need of people with generous hearts to prepare Christmas dinner and dessert for 6 shelter locations (approximately 108 women and 16 men) in our emergency and transitional housing program. Sign-up here to donate a dish or dessert. Dinner should be delivered by 2 pm on Christmas Day.  If you are interested in this opportunity, click here for our link to “Perfect Potluck” or email questions to volunteer@grandmashouseofhope.org 

Donate to our traditional Christmas Day at the Movies

We seek generous people to help us make Christmas Day festive and fun for the men and women in our Transitional Program. Christmas Day at the Movies is an afternoon activity we do every year. We are in need of movie tickets to the Regal Theaters. This could be in the form of gift cards to the theater. We need Regal tickets for 124 men and women and gift cards for popcorn/ concessions would be an extra special treat!

Gifts for Mommy and Daddy Donation Drive

Low-income families struggle to make the holidays enjoyable for their children. Children don’t have an allowance and can’t reciprocate the giving. Help us stock “Santa’s Workshop” held during our Motel Christmas Party on December 16th. Donate options for kids to choose a gift for their parents. Gifts for Dad – ties, men’s cologne, tool kits (no knives), screw drivers, basic watches or hats. Gifts for Mom – scarves, beauty kits, journals, accessories or costume jewelry. Deliver items by December 11 to our Santa Ana office weekdays from 9 AM- 5PM.
