Holiday Shopping Volunteers Needed

December 3, 2022 @ 7:30 am - 10:30 pm



Holiday Shopping -Volunteers needed for in person shopping on Saturday, December 3 2022.

Recently, Lion, Anne Baird, provided details on this great annual event:

Meijer generously donates a $15 gift card per child within a total limit of $1000 for the event. The Grand Rapids Lions Club donates $85 per child (up to $3000 for 40 children) to set a budget of $100 per gift card for children to spend on their family members. “Pass the Hat” donations through collections at Lions luncheons assist in supplementing the cost of having additional

children participate. For each $100 collected, an additional child is able to attend.

WHAT: The first shift is designated for the children with visual impairments and begins PROMPTLY at 7:15 a.m. The second shift begins at 8:30 a.m. for the Base Camp children who arrive with their staff. Wrapping of gifts and amount of time for shopping varies with each individual child, however, past experience has indicated that the event and activities are usually over with between 10:00 – 10:30 a.m.

When: Saturday, Dec 3 2022 at 7:15am – 10:30 am. Where: Meijer on 28th & I-96 in Cascade.
