A few hours of your time can make a world of difference.
We’re always looking for volunteers who are willing to commit a few hours, and a friendly spirit, to help our cause. We have opportunities for both individuals and companies to get involved.
We welcome families and businesses to host fundraisers and drives throughout the year. If you are looking to host a drive, please email us to learn about items we need.
Our greatest volunteer need is for drivers around the holiday season. Drivers deliver gifts and necessities to our families. While it requires some time and dedication, it can be one of our most rewarding volunteer efforts.
What can I expect as a driver?
You will transport items that can be heavy and/or bulky. Included in the boxes will be food, toys, and clothing. Each volunteer can make anywhere from 1 to 4 deliveries a night. All deliveries require a minimum of 2 people.
Our delivery dates for 2017 are December 6th and 7th.
You will pick up the items from the Expo building at the Sioux Falls Fairgrounds. There can be a line of several cars waiting to get items for delivery, so we thank you for your patience during the loading process.
We can’t do this without you! If you have questions about volunteering, email us. Otherwise, fill out our volunteer form and we’ll be in touch.
Please remember when volunteering:
A. Turn off engine while inside loading.
B. When delivering, tell them you are from Sioux Falls Cares and that you have some Christmas items from people that care.
C. Show them how many boxes. Tell them about the toys and hand them the envelope which includes certificates.
D. IF NOT HOME: Bring toys back and keep groceries. Come in the North doors and you will get a new address with different toys.
E. Please return the sheet with comments and bring back the same night if possible (or mail it back).
