WORK WEEK: SANTA’S ELVES
COVID NOTE: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 problems this fall, we need to lessen the contact between our staff and volunteers.

New volunteers can always sign up in other capacities for various events. We hope that you understand our reasoning, and that you will still want to volunteer with us in years to come!
- Date: Monday, December 6, Tuesday, December 7, possibly Wednesday December 8
- Volunteer to help prepare the children’s bags for Pick-Up Day
- Locaton: Canton Municipal Building, lower level
