How You Can Help


Routing help 12/10 at H. Boyd Nelson in Alexandria - We could use at least a dozen people to help on Friday evening, December 10th at H. Boyd Nelson 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 12/11 at H. Boyd Nelson - 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.

Food/Toy basket packaging and delivery 12/12 at H. Boyd Nelson - 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 H. Boyd Nelson and help with the food basket “assembly line”, do deliveries, or both! We give you instructions once you arrive that Sunday morning.

For more details on any of these opportunities, please call and leave a voicemail at (320)-335-2488 or email Becky at

Thanks for your interest in being a part of this GREAT cause!!
