St. Martin Center, Inc. needs volunteers in December to help organize the gifts for its Shining Stars program. The program, which is open to children ages 12 and younger, helps ensure kids whose families are struggling have gifts to open on Christmas.
Stars with kids’ names and their Christmas wish lists are hanging at organizations around Erie, including Widget Financial, Villa Maria Elementary School, McDowell Senior High School, Northwest Savings Bank and others. Generous members of the community select one or more stars and purchase gifts requested by the child (or children) named on the star(s).
Volunteers are needed Dec. 10 through Dec. 14, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. each day (for as much or as little time as you are able to give), to help get the donated gifts ready for delivery to the children. The activity will take place at St. Stanislaus Catholic Church, East 12th and Wallace streets.
For more information or to volunteer, contact Rita Zawacki at email@example.com or 452-6113 Ext. 215.
