Volunteer with MCHS this Holiday Season

The holiday season is around the corner, and we need your help to make this time memorable for the residential children and foster care families served by MCHS Family of Services. We have several opportunities coming up in November and December listed below. If you are interested in volunteering, you can sign up using the links below, or you can contact Eriann Scharer, Development Coordinator, at escharer@mchsmi.org.

Adopt a Family this Holiday Season

Help us stock presents under the tree for our boys and girls in the Unaccompanied Children program by adopting a wish list through your organization or personal efforts. You can request as many wish lists as you would like. Each wish list has 5 items but do not feel obligated to purchase all items. Gifts are due back to MCHS unwrapped by Friday, December 1 by 3PM.

Hand Addressing Holiday Cards: November 28, 29

We are looking for volunteers to help hand-address holiday cards we send out to community members. If it would be best to coordinate writing the letters off campus, we can make accommodations. The holiday handwritten opportunities will be held onsite at our Redford Campus on November 28 & 29, from 10AM – 4PM. 

Sign up here if you are interested.

Gift Wrapping: December 5

Do you love to wrap gifts? We need your help! We will be wrapping gifts for our children and families to open on Christmas from 10AM – 2PM on December 5 and 6.

Sign up here if you are interested.

Giving Hope for the Holidays

As we enter the holiday season, amid warm gatherings of family and friends and celebrations of hope and joy, MCHS Family of Services pauses to reflect on all that we are most grateful for. For the last 107 years, we have been honored to serve beside you in impacting the lives of the most vulnerable members of our communities. To help us close out a wonderful year, please consider giving your most impactful gift yet as more children and families need us than ever before. 

Your generous giving will help countless children and families this holiday season. Let’s partner together and make their holiday wishes come true!
