Toy Rescue Mission Christmas Volunteer Information

Christmas Distribution Calendar

Days that we are open 10am to 5:30, we need staff from 9:30-6.
You can take a whole day or a portion of a day. Shifts are 9:30-1:30, 1-5 or 2-6
The Saturday shifts (12/12 & 12/19) are 9:30-1:30 or 12:30-3:30
The two late shifts (12/15 & 12/17) are 9:30-1:30, 1-4:30 or 4 to 7:30
I need staff info BEFORE we invite other groups which will be extremely limited. I want to reduce our exposure to people outside of TRM. There will be staff rules for handling clients as well such as 100% use of mask and gloves. The closing shift each day will help wipe down door handles, phones, and anything that might have been exposed.

Maximum number of volunteers per shift will be 6-8 for any given day. If your group would like to reserve an entire day, please contact us early. Please know that we depend on you when you schedule. If you cannot come or come with less than you sign up for, it creates a customer service issue for our clients. It also interrupts lunches and or breaks.

All volunteers must be at least 16 years old. We limit the ages of minor children to ensure their safety. In some rare circumstances minors may be allowed with a parent if we decide to open evenings for limited appointments.

Bi-lingual volunteers are greatly needed, especially those fluent in Spanish or Russian. Please let us know in advance if you are bi-lingual for scheduling purposes.

As always, for questions, do not hesitate to contact me during office hours at (253) 460-6711 or by email: . I will return all calls and emails as soon as possible. Parking for all volunteers will be at the closed K-Mart one block away near the garden shop if the gates are open or along side streets. Carpooling is the best way to come. No parking at Tacoma Boys as they do tow.


Call us today at (253) 460-6711 if you would like to volunteer.
