Christmas Basket Elves Needed

It is hard to believe but it is almost time for ReVive Center’s Christmas Basket distribution. This year we are helping nearly 1,600 families!

Christmas Baskets is one of ReVive Center’s legacy programs that touch the lives of those receiving gifts, and also those giving gifts. If you’ve helped with the program before, you know how great this is. If you haven’t helped before, this is a wonderful way to see ReVive Center’s impact in the community.

We need 100 elves for Christmas Basket distribution every day from November 29 through December 11. Come for one or more days. Volunteer hours each day are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with lunch provided. All registrations are held at ReVive Center, 1668 W. Ogden Ave.

We need list checking elves (greet families, check paperwork), workshop elves (organize the boxes of gifts, and make sure the right gifts get to the right family), and sleigh driving elves (drive a small box truck on a pre-set route to one or more churches or corporations to pick up boxes).

Email Kevin at kmccullough@revivecenter.org or call the Christmas Basket office at 312-997-2222, x234.
