Holiday Cheer
Bring the holiday spirit into the homes of more than 200 isolated adults.
Holiday Cheer volunteers help bring the holiday spirit into the homes of more than 200 isolated older adults in N, NE and SE Portland by providing gifts and companionship during December.

There are three ways to be involved:

Gift Wrapping

On the first Saturday of December a local community room in NE Portland is transformed into a holiday workshop as volunteers gather with friends and family to wrap hundreds of donated gifts. Great for families and groups. This event fills quickly so contact us today to register for this holiday season.

Gift Bag Delivery and Visiting

Volunteers deliver gift bags to homebound or isolated adults throughout the month of December, spending meaningful time visiting and sharing with them.

Volunteers should allow 30 minutes to an hour for each gift delivery. Gift bags are picked up from the MFS Project Linkage office at 2200 NE 24th Ave. Portland and delivered to seniors delivered to seniors and people with disabilities in NE and SE Portland. Delivery volunteers must be 18 or older or accompanied by an adult, and pass a criminal background check. Register early to be matched with someone in your area.

For more information, email us at volunteer@mfs.email or call 503-232-0007 x211.
