We had a blast with 23 families on our largest beach retreat yet! The weather was perfect and everyone had a great time. BIG THANKS to everyone who sponsored kids, donated food, and volunteered to work the trip so the parents could relax a little more.

Our main holiday event this year will be our Santa's Workshop for BigHouse families.

Here are some ways you can get involved:

  • Volunteer to help kids shop for their family members on Sat., Dec. 13th (2 hour shifts from 7:45am - 6pm)
  • Volunteer in another area (childcare, giftwrapping, parents' shopping area) on Sat., Dec. 13th (2 hr shifts from 7:30am - 6pm)
  • Donate refreshments for our shoppers and volunteers
  • Donate gift wrapping supplies (bags, tissue paper, boxes, tape, wrapping paper, bows, gift tags)
