Santa’s Workshop is held each year at the YWCA to help families living in area homeless shelters, transitional housing programs or receiving YW services, to have a happy holiday season. This year's event will be "festival style" with children making crafts, taking pictures with Santa and parents selecting an educational book and receiving a gift card for each child.  

This year's event will be held on Saturday, December 10th from 9 am - 1 pm, with opportunities for individuals and groups/organizations to decorate the facility, organize crafts/books as well as assist on day of event.  We hope you find the perfect fit for you and/or your organization!  All Volunteer shifts on event day will be 4 hours with and actual service time may be less. Be prepared to assist with breakdown post event as well, as the more hands we have the quicker it will be!
