Mothers Helping Mothers – Toy Day

Calling all Elves!

MHM is happy to announce that we are having Toy Day again this year on Friday December 18th and we need volunteers to help pass out the gifts.

In order to keep every helper and shopper safe, we have put some new protocols in place.

1- We are using an online lottery to select and schedule appointments for clients to shop

2- We are using the entire store to space out the toys and sections

3- We are mask mandatory

4- We have a sanitizing elf that will be spreading spray throughout the day

5- We will be extending the hours of the event from 9am to 4pm to space out the clients/volunteers to limit # of people inside at any given time

6 – We will have all doors open and fans running to increase air flow (so bring a sweater)

We are hoping to bless 200 families this year but to do this, we are going to need to cover 2 shifts of 35 helpers per shift— spread out from the front gate to the back parking lot. Clients will shop 10 at a time for 20 minutes only.

Please consider helping us spread the love by signing up today!

We also need a dozen or so hands on Wed the 16th to help set up between 9 and 2 so just come on in if you have a few hours.
