2019 St. Nicholas Project Astor Place: Volunteers and Shoppers (East Village)
St. Nicholas Program ensures that all individuals and families receive gifts of necessity during the holidays – coats, gloves, blankets and more. In addition, throughout the year, caseworkers aid these same individuals by providing job coaching, emergency financial assistance to prevent evictions or utility shut-off, food from one of our many food pantries, and school supplies.
Volunteers are needed to help support the St. Nicholas Project Shopping Day.
The St. Nicholas Project Shopping Day is a fun-filled day at the Kmart in Astor Place. We will be shopping for approximately 400 families on this day and we need your help! Volunteers will be asked to help us "shop" at Kmart to select winter clothing items, process these items through the Kmart registers, and load everything onto Catholic Charities trucks for delivery.
Where: Kmart at Astor Place (770 Broadway, New York, NY 10003)
What you will do:
- Shop for families (volunteers will receive a family profile and shop for winter items - Catholic Charities provides this budget)
- Help at the cash registers
- Bag and sort donation items
- Load trucks
- Provide other assistance as needed
*We are unable to guarantee that each volunteer will be able to shop for families. We highly recommend you arrive early to shop for a family*
Volunteers will be asked to assist in one or more of these areas. Kmart has changed its store layout, and we will depend on volunteers to help us with moving, bagging and storing items.
