FAQs: Holidays & Special Projects

The holidays are a special time at God’s Love. Our community comes together to help us cook, pack, and home-deliver more than 9,000 holiday meals in Thanksgiving and December. On Thanksgiving, our clients receive a basket filled with treats for their household, in addition to their traditional Thanksgiving feasts (along with an extra meal for a loved one or guest). In December, we deliver gifts to our clients and their children, adding an extra special touch to the holiday season (and let’s not forget their delicious Winter Feast meal for them and a guest, too!)

Yes! We have volunteer opportunities year-round! View all of our opportunities here.

We have many volunteer opportunities including delivering meals, Thanksgiving Basket Day, and more. Learn more about our Thanksgiving Volunteer opportunities.

We are closed on Christmas Day and do not have any volunteer opportunities available.
