Subs for Santa! NOW ACCEPTING VOLUNTEERS, DONATIONS AND SPONSORS!
Sep 16, 2016
Join us for another year, as we give children in need from surrounding areas of Horry County a Christmas night to remember! Last year with the help of staff and volunteers, Subs for Santa was another success with over 100 volunteers helping 125 kids have a great Christmas experience.
This year we are looking to have over 150 volunteers to help put smiles on 150 kids’ faces. The evening begins at Ultimate California Pizza Game Zone on Lake Arrowhead Rd., where each child will be paired up with a volunteer. Together they will enjoy free pizza and game time. The next stop is Christmas shopping at Walmart on Hwy. 17 at Tanger Outlets.
Volunteers will accompany their children on motor coaches to Walmart where they will assist children in picking out toys and necessities using a Walmart gift card provided. All volunteers must be preregistered. Please see volunteer instructions below:
Please provide your full name including maiden name and email address. Once you have registered, I will contact all registrants to gather further information, such as birth date and tshirt sizes. There will be a background check. Volunteer registration deadline is November 30.
*Each volunteer that is signed up to work with a child will be paired with one child.
If you cannot volunteer and would still like to help, you can donate to Subs for Santa.
There will also be a quick run through volunteer meeting the day of the event on Tuesday, December 6, at 4:30 p.m. at Ultimate California Pizza and volunteers will be able to eat before the children arrive. If you cannot volunteer and would still like to help, you can donate to Subs for Santa. This event is made possible through contributions.
