Every December, Adoption STAR holds a holiday party for birth parents and their families, and this years event will take place on Wednesday, December 12, at the Getzville Fire Department on Dodge Road, Getzville, NY.
The party is held to give donated toys to birth families who are parenting other children, and help them get through the holiday season. Over 60 adults and children attended the party last year.
The event is scheduled to start at 5:00 pm and end at 7:00 pm, and volunteers would need to be available 1.5 hours before, to help set up, and one hour afterwards to help clean up.
We will also need volunteers to help wrap all of the gifts before the holiday party. Lastly, we are looking for donations of new toys (still in the packaging) that can be given to children (ages newborn to teenage) at the holiday party. If you are able to volunteer at the event, and/or wrap/donate presents, please email Adoption STAR Development Associate, Kristin Ackerman, or call (716)639-3900.
