How You Can Help


Jingle Bells 2023 volunteers

Set up and decorating of trees on Friday 12/8 @ AAHS around 3:30-4pm
We could use a handful of people to help us set up and decorate our trees to be used on stage for the show. This is in the PAC at the high school in Alex.

Routing help 12/8 at C&L Distributing in Alexandria (see map below)- We could use at least a dozen people to help on Friday evening, December 9th at C&L Distributing in Alexandria. We need help to put routing cards together, put stickers on toy bags and then combine them with routing cards. Knowledge of the city streets and roads is a plus but not required! This begins around 5:30-6pm and usually takes a couple of hours.

Toy “shopping” Saturday 12/9 at C&L Distributing - We hope for around 30-40 people to fill toy bags from the request sheets from families. You get a list and have to “shop” from the various toys that are divided into age group, to fill toy requests from the families in need. This begins around 9am until finished. Children may come, but need to be supervised by a parent as they “shop”. Cardboard food boxes also can be assembled at this time.

Tear down of the trees and the stage @ AAHS following the telethon on Saturday 12/9 - We can always use extra help from anyone who may be a night owl or who is out at the AAHS watching the telethon live, to help us take down ornaments/trees/stage décor following the telethon. This is usually around 10:15pm until finished. The more hands, the better! We truly appreciated the student help on this last year as well!

Food basket packaging and delivery Sunday 12/10 at C&L Distributing - This is open to the community/public beginning at 9am. We package up all the food baskets and start deliveries as they are ready. You can come to C&L Distributing in Alexandria and help with the food basket “assembly line”, do deliveries, or both! We give you instructions once you arrive that Sunday morning.
