Become a Volunteer at the Warehouse

CMPD Explorers Christmas Project Warehouse Volunteers
We invite individuals or Organizations/Companies to sign up for volunteer days at our warehouse. Volunteers will assist with sorting donated toys, filling family boxes, wrapping gifts, cleaning up etc.

The warehouse will be open on Monday, November 27th, 2017 through Friday, December 21st, 2017. Volunteers can sign up for any weekday between these dates.

We also need volunteers for Delivery Day which will be on Thursday, December 21st, 2017​ 8:00am – 2​:00pm. This is when CMPD Officers, CFD, and other volunteers deliver all the gifts to the families.

There are two different shifts each day that you may sign up for.
Morning Shift (9:00am – 12:00pm)
Afternoon Shifts (1:00pm – 4:00pm)

​Before each volunteer shift starts we will hold a volunteer briefing for the group.
