Seasonal Opportunities

Holiday Opportunities

The 2019 Holiday Season is here and what better time to consider gathering your friends, family and work colleagues together to give back during this special time of year. Looking for ideas on how to get engaged and give back this holiday season?

Below are a few opportunities that will take place in November - January, that you or your company can get involved in. 

For volunteer opportunities, please contact Deb Bacorn at DebraB@tempeaction.org

Questions about sponsorships, please contact Joe Rivera at joer@tempeaction.org

Turkey Drive

This year, TCAA's goal is to provide 500 families in need of a turkey for Thanksgiving dinner. Volunteers can help by organizing a turkey drive with fellow employees or friends. Please let us know how many turkeys you’re hoping to collect (so we can keep track). Turkeys are distributed to Food Pantry clients the week before Thanksgiving, so turkey donations should be delivered to TCAA by November 18.

Holiday Dinner Fixings

Not sure about turkeys? Well, you can also organize a food drive with the traditional fixings to complete a holiday dinner.

Holiday Lights

For about 2-3 hours on a Saturday in December, volunteers are needed to bring a little holiday cheer to home-bound and limited mobility older adults in Tempe. Volunteer groups will hang holiday lights on several homes belonging to clients of TCAA’s Senior Independence programs. In January, volunteers will return to remove and store the lights and decorations.

Adopt a Family

Collect new, unwrapped toys for children ages 1-15, gift cards to stores such as Target or Walmart for teens, and gift wrap. Volunteers will also be needed to help wrap gifts for families.

You can also sponsor a family this holiday season, and your donation will be used towards the purchase gift cards for teens and parents, and toys for children from disadvantaged households and attending TCAA programs.
