Christmas Mitzvah Project
‘Tis the season to let your light shine.
Volunteer. Donate. Sparkle.
For 27 years, the Christmas Mitzvah Project has mobilized volunteers to provide relief at local hospitals, assisted living facilities, shelters, and nonprofit organizations, so that staff can enjoy Christmas with family and friends.
Unable to participate this year? Consider making a financial contribution or a donation to our Amazon wish list. Every mitzvah counts.
It’s not too late to become a host site! Register your organization to become a host site or receive indirect service from JEWISHcolorado volunteers.
If your organization is closed on Christmas, you can still participate!
We’re excited to announce all of our volunteer opportunities will be in person this year.
Sign up for in-person volunteer shifts at our non-profit partners from December 18-25. Or, choose one of our family sites, where you will assist in putting together a variety of kits to donate to organizations that need them. Our family site shifts are broken up into the following themes, and are open to all ages to join:
- Friday, December 23rd from 8am – 11am: Homelessness & First Responders
- Friday, December 23rd from 1pm – 4pm: Children & The Elderly
- Sunday, December 25th from 8am – 11am: Pet & Animal Projects
- Sunday, December 25th from 1pm – 4pm: The Environment
**If the volunteer opportunity you are looking for is full, please register for the waitlist and we will let you know if a spot opens up. Additionally, If you do not see the volunteer opportunity yet that you are looking for, please check back often. New opportunities will be added as they arise. **
- As a part of completing online registration, volunteers select a shift and task such as preparing meals, sorting donations, or caring for animals. Volunteer shifts vary from site to site. Please read carefully when registering details (including shift time, date, address, and other restrictions such as flu shot and minimum age). Please do not bring individuals to your shift who have not registered and/or those who do not meet registration requirements.
- Please only select one in-person shift per person.
- We need a few Rosh volunteers: What is a Rosh? In Hebrew, Rosh means “head” or “captain.” The Rosh Volunteer is the contact person for the site during the shift. You will check in with the host site and volunteers prior to Christmas, hand out t-shirts, and let us know if any volunteers cancel or if any issues arise during the shift. Please note in your registration if you are willing to serve as a Rosh volunteer, or contact us directly.
- Volunteer Safety: The work of volunteers is vital, and we take your health and safety seriously. Follow CDC guidelines on how to protect yourself, and if you are feeling ill or exhibiting symptoms, please stay home.
