Volunteer Prince William: Meeting Community Needs Through Volunteer Resources During 2017 Holiday Season

Mary Foley, Executive Director at Volunteer Prince William (http://www.volunteerprincewilliam.org/), states that they need volunteers for their holiday gift program.

The Prince William “Un Trim A Tree Holiday Gift Program” is a very special program that serves children and seniors in need.  Each year this holiday program provides gifts to thousands in the greater Prince William community.  Volunteer Prince William partners with local churches, clubs and businesses to bring a brighter holiday season to local children of the community.  In 2016, Un Trim a Tree served over 5,500 children and 200 seniors.   

Children are provided two gifts per child, valued at not more than $50-$75 per child.  This ensures that all children are treated equally.  This program is easy to support and join. Please fill out and submit a donor form http://www.volunteerprincewilliam.org/utat2017/ to let Volunteer Prince William know how many children you would like to buy for.  They will send you the wish list, and you can shop for the child and or senior.  What a wonderful way to share the true meaning of the holidays with your family!

Donations of Senior Baskets are also accepted and will be given to homebound seniors throughout the community.  Baskets could include card games, crossword puzzles or other suitable activities as well as little treats. Hand cream, warm socks, lap throws or wraps are also popular.
