Volunteer and/or Donate to Alexandria House’s Free Shopping Holiday Party!

Alexandria House Free Shopping Holiday Party welcomes their past and current resident families to celebrate the holidays with them. Everyone gets a visit with Ms. Claus, a chance to pick out presents, make crafts, and have a good time! They are looking for volunteers to help welcome the families, run craft and game tables, organize and supervise activities, and have fun celebrating the holidays season!

Alexandria Ave. (yellow house) from Nov 26 to Dec 15. They couldn't do this without your support, thank you!
