Become a Volunteer for Christmas for the Children’s Annual Shopping Spree!

The greatest gift we can give is ourselves

Looking for a way to spread some holiday cheer this year? Want to be part of a local organization that brings joy and laughter to children at Christmas time? Ready for a day of fun, food and toy shopping?

Christmas for the Children wants YOUR help! We’re a local not-for-profit organization that provides less fortunate children and their families an opportunity to enjoy a spectacular Christmas shopping trip. We want YOU to be one of the 3900 people who have helped us bring love and happiness to Middle Tennessee families for the last 22 years, because we know we can’t do it without you.

With your help, time and love, we would like to take 250 children on the shopping trip this year – but we can’t do it alone. You can make it possible for us to help even more children by volunteering as a chaperone for a child in need this holiday season.

Who we’re looking for

Christmas for the Children is looking for volunteer chaperones to help us help kids have the time of their lives at the Hendersonville Wal-Mart this year. We’re looking for people who:

  • Are at least 18 years of age, and
  • Have made arrangements for their own children’s day care at another location, so they
  • Can join us at White House High School and the Hendersonville Wal-Mart, between the hours of 8:30 and 3:30 on Saturday, December 4th, 2021, to
  • Spend a day shopping with a child, and then
  • Pig out on some delicious Papa John’s pizza at the after party!

On the day of the event, please bring a valid photo ID, like a driver’s license or a student or military ID card, so we can register you. If you discover at the last minute that you can make the event, c’mon down! There’s always room for more help and fun! For legal reasons, we can only allow volunteers and registered children on our buses.

For more information, please contact us if you have any questions or to register to be a volunteer.

Please help us spread the word

Even if you cannot join us on our trip, you can still help by letting your friends, family and local community leaders and business know about our work. Please pass this information along to your churches, civic organizations, friends and family, and any other organizations you work with. Our volunteers are the only way we can take 250 children from Sumner and Robertson Counties shopping this year. To get an idea of what this trip is all about, please read our Shopping Event page, and check out this video, Experience the Joy, to see what this day is all about. We want and need your help to make Christmas special for children in our community.
