2018 Christmas Bureau News

It is time to begin thinking about Christmas and the Union County Christmas Bureau. We have a split location this year but wanted to let you know of the plans as of now. We will begin taking applications from families in October. The application process will take place at the new Union County Human Services location. The distribution will be held at Monroe Crossings as last year, but we aren’t able to move into that space until mid-November.

For now, we are asking for volunteers that have basic computer skills and can commit to at least 4 – 8 hours each week from October 1 through November 21. We ask for volunteers to be able to help in 4 hour shifts (8:30-1230 and 12:30-4:30). If you are able to help with this, we will need for you to plan to attend one of the 2 training dates below:

Event Name: Volunteer Application Training

Event Description: Volunteers will be trained on the interview and intake process for the families that will be applying to receive Christmas assistance for their families. Volunteers only need to attend one of the two trainings.

September 24, 9 – 12; or

September 25, 9-12

Event Meeting Location: Union County Human Services, 2330 Concord Avenue, Monroe, NC 28110.
