You don’t have to go to the North Pole to be an elf this Christmas season. Just volunteer to help out with Tempe Community Action Agency’s 8th annual Holiday Toy Shoppe, sponsored by IKEA, Dec. 14-20. The agency needs helpers to sort toys and work in the shop. To volunteer, email Darlene Pany at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Toy drives are also needed. So if you are willing to lead a toy drive at your workplace, neighborhood or for an organization, email Beth Fiorenza at Bethf@tempeaction.org.
Tempe Community Action Agency is a nonprofit “dedicated to combating the root causes of poverty in our community by providing emergency services to working poor families, children, seniors, and the homeless,” according to the ad on volunteermatch.org. Last year’s toy shoppe/drive resulted in more than 4,000 toys and gift cards being delivered to those in need in the community.
Tempe Community Action Agency is located at 2150 E. Orange St. For more information, visit www.tempeaction.org.
