2021 Volunteer Opportunities

It is time to begin thinking about Christmas and the Union County Christmas Bureau.  We will begin taking applications from families on Monday, October 4th.  The application process will take place at the Union County Human Services location.  The application process will be limited contact due to COVID restrictions at our facility.  Applications will be taken over the phone from the applicant and volunteers will enter the information into our Christmas HOPE application system while at our office.  This is a very heavy computer skills-based opportunity. 

For now, we are asking for volunteers that have excellent computer skills and can commit to at least 4 – 8 hours each week from October 4th through December 3rd.  We ask for volunteers to be able to help in 4 hour shifts (8:30-12:30 or 12:30-4:30).  If you would like to and are able to help with this, please respond to this email if you have not had our application training in the past.  We will setup a time for you to take the application training before you can register for the events outlined below.

If you have attended the application training in the past and are able to volunteer this year, please follow these instructions to register online for this event:
