Dear Holiday Express Musician Volunteer:
Welcome to Holiday Express!
We are delighted that you are interested in supporting us. We are deeply appreciative of the commitment of our team of outstanding volunteers who help us to fulfill our mission:
To deliver music, food, gifts, financial support and friendship to those with the greatest need for the gift of human kindness during the holiday season and throughout the year.
In 2017, Holiday Express will hold 100 charitable events between November 7th and Christmas Eve. Our events are held at soup kitchens, schools for children with special needs, programs for adults who are developmentally challenged, recovery programs, homeless shelters and more. Our programs are not open to the public and are designed to bring holiday cheer to those who are desperately in need and often forgotten.
New musicians are accepted by referral only. Your application will be reviewed by our music committee and we will be in touch with you regarding your status. If you have indicated an interest in other volunteer opportunities, your e-mail address will be added to our Constant Contact e-blast list, which will serve as our primary means of correspondence with all you, including information about how to sign up for volunteer shifts in the warehouse and for our events. A volunteer orientation is held in the fall, and throughout the year, we offer additional training as a part of our Holiday Express University.
We want your volunteer experience to be a positive one, and are here to help if you have any questions. Please contact the staff in our office if you need assistance.
